Gary L. Wykoff

Gary L. Wykoff, 75, of Meadville, passed away peacefully Friday, November 24, 2023, at Meadville Medical Center surrounded by family.


Gary was born in Meadville, on July 6, 1948, a son of the late Ernest and Violet (Whitten) Wykoff and was a 1967 graduate of Meadville Area High School.


On July 22, 1972 Gary married Susan E. Smith; she survives.


After 36 years of service, Gary retired from Micro Tool.  For six years prior to that he was employed by Channellock as a polisher. During those years, while working full time to support his family, he was also enrolled at the Crawford County Vo-Tech where he became certified as a Journeyman Tool and Die Maker.  He was a former member of the Elks BPOE #219.  A true craftsman, Gary had a passion for woodworking.  He loved working with his hands and made countless wooden Christmas ornaments among other things.  He found great pleasure in gifting his talents to others.  He also enjoyed being outdoors and fishing.  Gary will be most remembered for his warm smile and sense of humor.  He will be sadly missed.


In addition to his wife, Susan, of 51 years, Gary is survived by two children Dana Wykoff Tiller of Meadville; Gina Wykoff Cantrell (Shane) of Hamilton, MT; a sister Elaine Wykoff of Meadville; a nephew Richard Smith of Conneaut Lake; and a niece Michelle Smith Whitehurst (Frank) of Virginia.


In addition to his parents, Gary was preceded in death by a sister Sandra Sorenson.
