Gail served 4 years in the United States Navy as an electrician’s mate. After his service, he worked as an electrician for the Wyoming oil industry.
He dedicated himself to bettering the Casper community by being a charter member of the Casper Habitat for Humanity helping build homes. He also was an active volunteer of the Casper Meals on Wheels helping to deliver meals to many residents in need.
The epitome of good people, Gail was very ornery in the best way. There were not many people who could resist a laugh when he started making his jokes and telling his stories. He will be greatly missed.
Gail is survived by his wife, daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Also Gail is survived by his siblings, Ralph Thayer, Gary (DeeDee) Thayer, Terry (RoJean) Thayer and Mary Regan.
Per Gail’s wishes an intimate family memorial has been held. Memorial donations may be made in Gail’s name to the Casper Habitat for Humanity.
