Gary L. Pergolski

Gary L. Pergolski, 75, Beloit, passed away at home surrounded by his family. He was born Nov. 11, 1944 in Wausau, to Leonard and Lorraine (Herzog) Pergolski.  

Gary enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Force reserves and proudly served his country. After his honorable discharge, he would spend his career in the real estate business as a real estate appraiser. He was a member of Our Lady of Assumption Church, Beloit and enjoyed going to Holy Family Church when staying in St. Germain at the cottage.  

On March 23, 2009, Gary married Olivia Martinez in St. Germain. They would enjoy many trips around North America together, including trips to Daytona Beach, Fla.; Corpus Christi, Texas; Mexico — Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Guanajuato, and Mexico City with his brother-in-law, and also Canada.  

He enjoyed fishing, going for drives on the motorcycle or car, taking the Porsche Driving School in Florida, swimming, dancing, and cooking or grilling meals for his family.    

Gary is survived by his wife Olivia; children: Amber (Bradley) Pellegrino, David (Jessica) Pergolski and Daniel (Melissa) Pergolski; his grandchildren: Orion and Lillian Pergolski, Ella and Ava Pellegrino, and Kylie Pergolski; his step-children: Gabby, Nancy and Frank; step-grandchildren: Brandon, Alan and Luna; siblings: Michael (Lori) Pergolski, Patrick (Patrice) Pergolski, and Shirley (John) Bauman; and sister-in-law Shelly Pergolski Mueller. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother Jay Pergolski.
