In memory of Gary Tinder

Gary was wrongfully taken away from us yesterday evening (June 21st) due to gun violence. If you know Gary you know that those two things sound weird in the same sentence. Gary wouldn’t hurt a bug. He had such a big heart for others and always knew how to make someone laugh.

Gary has overcome adversity in different aspects of his life. His father passing away being the biggest one. Although his father was taken from him at a young age he still was motivated to do well in school to take care of his family. He went through high school and all the way until junior year of college at Depaul University with a 4.0 GPA. 

I decided to make this gofundme to do exactly what Gary was most passionate about... taking care of his family.
