Gary was born on August 19, 1951, to Ralph and Mildred Flicek. He was the second oldest of ten children. Gary grew up on the family farm and developed a deep love for fishing from his Grandpa Sempaur at a young age. Throughout his life, Gary carried his love for fishing where he was semi- pro and traveled to different states to compete in bass tournaments and enjoyed teaching others about the sport. Gary made his own homemade fishing lures and he named his business “Hammer’s Baits”. When Gary was diagnosed with leukemia on January 24, 2010, Gary believed his hobby in making lures was his lifeline. Gary was employed at Ermak Foundry where he was forced to retire after 32 years.
