Gary George Lightcap was the infant son of my grandparents, Wally and Eunice (Strelesky) Lightcap, and older brother of my dad. Gary was born on April 7, 1946, in Dubuque, Iowa, and died on April 23, 1946. He passed at Finley Hospital in Dubuque, one of several babies who died due to an illness that spread through the nursery.
He is buried at Mount Calvary Cemetery, next to his grandparents John Joseph and Ernestine (Sanders) Strelesky.
