Lifelong Glasgow, MO resident, Gary Fuemmeler, 64, passed away suddenly at the University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia on October 29, 2021. Gary was born in Fayette, MO on August 7, 1957. He was the oldest of five children born to David Eugene and Agnes Kathleen (Monnig) Fuemmeler. Gary attended and graduated elementary school at St. Mary’s. He graduated from Glasgow High School with the class of 1975. Gary married the love of his life, Peggy (Henke) Fuemmeler, on April 8, 1978 at St. Joseph Church in Salisbury, MO. Together they’ve enjoyed over 43 years of marriage. Throughout his career, Gary worked as a farmer, raising livestock and tending to his crops. In 1997, he started working part time as a rural mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service. In 2013, he started delivering a full rural route in the Glasgow area. Gary was involved in the community, serving on the Glasgow School Board and volunteering in various capacities. He was the jr. high basketball coach for St. Mary’s for a number of years and currently President of the St. Mary’s Endowment Board. He enjoyed playing cards, snooker and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. Gary will be remembered for his generosity and kindness, his smile and laugh, his willingness to always lend a helping hand, and for always putting God and family first. He was a genuine, good man, consistently helping and praying for those in need. Gary’s faith was unmatched and those who knew him can attest to this. He was a devout Catholic and very active at St. Mary Catholic Church, serving as Eucharistic Minister for Mass and for parish members that were unable to get out. His role as husband, father, grandfather, brother, cousin and friend was a role he was great at, one in which he thrived and succeeded. His memory and legacy will live on through his children and grandchildren, and he will be deeply missed by family, friends, and the Glasgow community. Survivors include his wife, Peggy Fuemmeler, of the home; three sons, Jamey (Theresa) Fuemmeler of Glasgow, Joshua (Terin) Fuemmeler of Glasgow, and Todd (Erica) Fuemmeler of Kearney, MO; his mother, Kathleen Fuemmeler of Glasgow; nine grandchildren, Jordan, Halle, Cade, Tenley, Tyley, Trey, Taytum, Hayven and Coltyn; four siblings, Don (Marta) Fuemmeler, Kevin (Lisa) Fuemmeler, both of Glasgow, Darren (Sonya) Fuemmeler of Armstrong and Tricia (Phillip) Hackman of Glasgow. He was preceded in death by his father, David Fuemmeler. Visitation will be from 5-8 PM, Monday, November 1, 2021 at St. Mary’s Church in Glasgow. A rosary and prayer service will be held at 4 PM, before the visitation at the church. Mass of Christian Burial will be 10:30 AM, Tuesday at St. Mary Church, with Fr. Joshua Duncan officiating. Interment will follow the service at Washington Cemetery.
