Gary Weiler was born on Oct. 10, 1940, in the town of Bern, Athens, Wisconsin, to Henry and Rachael (Niemuth) Weiler. He attended grade school in Hewitt and later in Marshfield.

Gary was a heavy equipment operator for 38 years, retiring in 2002. He was a member of Local 139 Operators Union for 55 years; and a member of Gust Gym and boxed in Golden Gloves as a young adult. He was still acting as Director of Squared Circle until he passed; and also volunteered at Saint Vincent’s Outreach. He enjoyed deer hunting, always getting his deer, and working in the woods.
