June 2, 1951 – April 26, 2022 (age 70)

Gary Allan Stoeger, 70, of Casper, passed away at home on Tuesday, April 26, 2022. He was the first child born on June 2, 1951 to Robert Stoeger and Ila (Dempsey) Lamb. He grew up in Casper, where he was raised by his mother and stepfather, Tom Lamb.

As a teenager, he was a Golden Glove Boxer, winning several fights, and he kept in shape by running to and from school while training for boxing. He graduated from Natrona County High School in 1970.

After graduation, he was briefly married and had a son, Dave. In 1976, he met Debbie Kay Trank and gained another son, Wayne, followed a couple years later by Michael and Thomas.

He spent most of his life in Casper and Thermopolis. He enjoyed fishing, playing Fantasy Football with his family, anything Broncos or Colorado Rockies, and old music.

He worked many jobs in his life, including sales, but his favorite work was the many years he spent at Defense Technology.

He is survived by his siblings Chuck Stoeger of Evansville and Shelly (Skip) Jackson of Casper; his children Dave Freeman of Arkansas, Wayne (Rachael) Trank of Casper, Michael Trank of Ft. Bridger, and Thomas Trank of Casper; his grandchildren Emily, Willym and Martena; several nieces and nephews; and his longtime friend Rose Sosa and her daughters Juanita and Elizabeth.
