Gary D. Kimmel, 82, Altoona, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday.

 He was born in Claysburg, son of the late Ross and Mildred (Burket) Kimmel.

Gary was retired and enjoyed hunting, fishing and he was an avid Steelers fan. He always had a kind word and warm smile for others he met. He was always ready to listen and ask about their day. His compassionate nature and genuine curiosity made him a beloved friend to many.

He was a proud veteran that honorably served in the United States Air Force.
