Gareld “Gary” Norman Dibble was born in Tracy, MN.  He has been a resident of the Yuba –Sutter, California area for 40+ years. Gary is an Air Force Veteran, serving the Vietnam war.  He had been stationed at Beale AFB in CA and stayed in the area when he was discharged.  Gary started a crop dusting business after being discharged.  He flew for many years and was also a flight instructor for a time.  He loved to hunt as well.  But deep in his heart he was always a farm boy from Minnesota and he loved to grow things.  He grew 20 acres of wine grapes on his property, but loved his garden most of all.  Many neighbors, friends and employees were recipients of his garden bounty.  His tomatoes were the most famous.

He is survived by his wonderful and loving wife, Jennifer Barrett of Browns Valley; his amazing daughter, Anna Dibble of Browns Valley; his step-daughter, Marie Aragon; his step-son, Tom Moll; two grandchildren, Scarlett and Diego; his siblings: Jane Hanson (Robert), Karen Nyren (Colin), Marie Flaten, Chick Dibble and Roger Dibble: also many nieces and nephews.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Clark and Elsie Dibble of MN.

    We are so sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. We had such fun at our 45th class reunion and we were hoping to visit Gary at some time in CA now that Dave just retired this year. Karen, we would have liked to come to the funeral and/or visitation, but we are taking care of grandchildren in St. Cloud this weekend. Other than Gary it has been so long since I(Janice Gorden) have seen any of your family. We had some good times on the school bus. All of you have our deepest sympathy. Gary will be sadly missed and happily remembered at our 50th reunion next year. Take care. Love and prayers from Dave and Jan
