Obituary of Gary J. Strauss

Gary J. Strauss, loving Son, brother and uncle, has passed from our lives on Saturday, February 29, 2020. He is survived by his father Jacques Strauss; brother Marc, sister-in-law Heather and his nephew and niece Matthew and Grace. A caring, loving family man, he brought smiles and laughter to all who knew him. Our favorite sports fanatic, best friend and companion, he was the heart of kindness in our lives and taken from us too soon. We love you very much Gary and we are grateful that you fought the fight as long as you could… “It is not the size of a man, but the size of his heart that matters” Evander Holyfield A memorial visitation will be held at Colonial Memorial Funeral Home, 396 State Route 52, Woodbourne NY, 12788 on Saturday March 7, 2020 from 4-6PM.
