I'm so sorry for your loss. I know Margie and Geary (MOOSE) from the community center in holley. always there for lunch time! Moose is such a great person and always a pleasure to talk too. we would talk about the old baseball days and sports and all kinds of things. He will be really missed at the community center. Rest in Peace Moose!
This guy was the best and will always be in our hearts and thoughts.
He was a great cousin and model to us growing up on Wegman Rd. way back and working the family farm and later at Wegman Dairy.
No one could tell a joke like Moose - he filled the room in more ways than one!
Big hearted and nice as can be!
I guess we just lucked out having a guy of the caliber of .....Moose!
Our sympathy and prayers to the family. I have many memories of “Mr. Shenck”, growing up down the road in Manning. My sister, Kathleen Mawn, babysat the kids. He always had a smile on his face and a joke or story to tell. He will be missed by the whole community.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I remember riding my first pony at the Shenck farm when I was quite small. The dog started barking and startled the horse causing her to rear up. Mr Shenck was so concerned and yelled hang on Beth! He got me through what could've been devastating. He calmed the horse and got me down. I always trusted him after that. Had the pleasure of knowing him my entire life. He will be missed. RIP Mr. Shenck. God bless.
"Moose"was always a man larger than life with a booming voice to go along with it. He was a big "teddy bear" & always a joy to be around & always ready to tell you a joke!! I first met him when he bowled @ Spencerport Lanes on Friday nights as Tom, my husband, bowled that night as well...against "Moose's" team. Later on Tom played poker on Friday nights with "Moose" & some of his very close friends & from what I was told, always had a new joke to tell. What a memory that man had! He was such a people person & everyone that knew "Moose" was a better human being because of him. He leaves a very big void in so many of our lives, especially his beautiful wife Marge & their seven children & their families. Our thoughts & prayers go out to each & everyone of them & hope with God's help that they can heal from this loss. God Bless them all. Love always, Tom & Judi Dudley
Fond memories of Gary. Remembering our Canal towns barge trip to Rochester on the Erie Canal. The barge left Brockport earlier than announced. In a long dress with a hoop skirt I had to jump aboard. Hesitantly, I did not want to jump aboard a departing barge. Gary said just fall toward the barge and I will catch you. My husband jokingly said Gary was the only man I ever trusted. So many good memories of a great fellow.
Mrs. Shenck and Family,
I was beyond heartbroken to learn of Mr. Shenck's passing. His wit and wisdom, will forever be embedded in all of us that knew him. Always kind, caring, compassionate and that beautiful smile. I'm going to miss seeing him at Mass, it won't be the same. I'm sending you lots of love and prayers during this time, and I hope that the love and support of your family will sustain you all. Thank you for sharing him with us, he was a true gentleman. May he rest with the angels.
Marge & Family,
I was so sorry to recieve the news of Geary's passing. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. His booming voice, perpetual smile and bevy of jokes (some good, some not so good) will be missed by those of us lucky enough to have known him.
Marge and family, we were very saddened to hear of the passing of Geary. "Moose" was a good and kind soul who always brightened our lives with a kind word or a joke and will be greatly missed by Sue and I. May the Lord bless and comfort you in this time of loss to all. With our prayers, Ray and Sue Emerson.
My heart is breaking. One of the great men in my life, I cannot remember a time he wasn't part of my family - like an honorary uncle! So many years of memories flood through my mind. I will remember his smiling face, his sharp wit, his warm hugs, and of course, his infectious laugh. Rest well Geary, you are loved and will be remembered fondly.
Along with all of our poker playing buddies, I was very sad to hear of the passing of the Moose. He was truly a great guy and he always regaled us with countless stories and jokes at our games.
I got to know the Moose from the old days of bowling at Spencerport lanes and the subsequent card games when I met him for the first time through my father.
He was truly one of a kind! Thoughts and prayers are with Marge and the family.
