Gary M. Ewald DDS, 69

Gary M. Ewald, 69 of Ashland passed away early Monday morning, October 5, 2020.

He was born on December 4, 1950 in Lima, Ohio, the son of the late Eugene William and Marylee Ruth (nee Hole) Ewald.

Gary graduated from Wapakoneta St. Joseph Class of 1969. He received his undergraduate degree from Xavier University in 1973, and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry in 1977.

In 1977 Gary and Janet met while working together in a Dental Clinic in Toledo, Ohio, and they just celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary on September 22.

For more than 43 years, Gary had been a family dentist. Gary was a devoted member of St. Edward Catholic Church where he was actively involved with the Knights of Columbus. Throughout his life, Gary was an avid sports enthusiast, especially for his alma mater, Xavier University. He especially loved spending time with his children and grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife, Janet (nee Schlageter) Ewald of Ashland; one son, Dan (Kelly) Ewald of Hilliard, Ohio; one daughter, Erin (Korey) Kaufman of Ashland; and six grandchildren, Ryan, Morgan, Colin, Preston, Jacob, and Amelia; and one brother, Joseph (Catherine) Ewald of Powell, Ohio.

Gary is preceded in death by his parents and brother James Ewald.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held, Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. in the St. Edward Catholic Church with Father Rod Kreidler presiding. Interment will follow in the Ashland Cemetery.

Janet; my heart is heavy and I feel a loss of a friend. He was a very kind and decent man with a grin I will always remember. I had not been into the office because of the Virus and other personal things. I hope this finds you and yours in a love felt way. I am not good with words, but I will miss him. Rick Canfield

Dan and I were both shocked to hear of Dr. Ewald's passing. I remember moving to Ashland in 1999 and looking for a dentist. I immediately made an appointment with Dr. Ewald because he stood out from the rest because his last name was my father's first name. I had since realized that that was not the only reason he stood out. He was a wonderful dentist, kind man and will be sorely missed.

Please accept our sincerest condolences and heartfelt prayers at this difficult time.
