Gary Michael Reiser
During the morning hours of Sunday (Feb. 9, 2020) Gary Michael "Papa" Reiser, of Brookfield, was called to his eternal home, while a patient in the Sharon Regional Medical Center, following a gallant fight against cancer. He was 69.
Gary was born in Sharon on Oct. 18, 1950, a son to Clinton L. and Barbara Lou (Christy) Reiser.
He was a 1968 graduate of Brookfield High School, and furthered his education by attending the former Warren Business School.
He fell in love with a neighborhood gal by the name of Kathy, and they married on Sept. 2, 1972. Together, they raised two children and spent the next 47 years holding hands.
Gary supported his young family by working on the assembly line at Delphi Packard, Warren, Ohio. Through hard work and dedication, he held various positions,such as insurance representative, benefit administrator, and serving as president of his local union.
His memberships included: Brookfield United Methodist Church; IUE-CWA Local 717, where he served and fought for countless union members; and he was proud to have sat in negotiations with General Motors, Detroit.
In his spare time, he enjoyed camping, boating, hunting, fishing, and NASCAR, cheering on Dale Earnhardt Jr. In addition, he loved spending time with his family and friends at Lake Erie. However, what he cherished the most, was being around his children, especially his granddaughter, Ella.
He is survived by: his wife, Kathy A. Reiser; his son, Michael Gary Reiser and Whitney of Hubbard; his daughter, Dr. Meghan Reiser of Pittsburgh; his granddaughter, Ella Elizabeth; his mother, Barbara Lou Robbins, of Masury; his brother, Brian Reiser and Tracy, of Masury; and his nieces, Christy Brown and Monica Jordan, of Columbus, Ohio.
He was preceded in death by his father and by his brother, Danny Reiser.

Gary Michael "Papa," 69, of Brookfield.
