Vincent M Gaiz
Died on Sunday, May 14th, 2017

Vincent M. Gaiz, 91, a resident of Davenport, died Sunday, May 14, 2017 at the Clarissa C. Cook Hospice House, Bettendorf, IA. Vince lived in the Chicago area for almost 90 years, working as a Chicago police officer and a limousine driver in retirement. He was born on October 23, 1925 to Agata and Michael Gaizauskas in Chicago.

Vince was married for 67 years to his wife, Dee, who preceded him in death in May 2015. His family extends deep gratitude to the staff at Senior Star Memory Care, as well as the staff and manager of Whitey’s Ice Cream on East 53rd Street, where he was served as a regular customer with kindness and respect.

Vince is survived by daughter and son-in-law the Revs. Raisin and John Horn of Davenport, grandson Noah Horn (Arianne Abela) and great-granddaughter Hazel of Detroit, Michigan, and one sister, Gertrude Masulis of Clarendon Hills, Illinois.

Private graveside memorial services will be held at a later date in Chicago. Weerts Funeral Home, Davenport, is assisting his family with arrangements.
