Gary’s Grandfather’s passing away led him to join the Knights and to become a Sir Knight. “I remember visiting my Grandparents in SE Iowa and seeing Grandpa Clem in his Knights regalia participating in funerals or handing out Tootsie rolls to support people with disabilities. These memories made a deep impression on me and is one of the reasons I became a Knight. I am honored to have inherited my grandfather’s regalia and continue to carry his sword today.”
