Gary Emmet MARENGO 1947 - 1983 Minnesota

Surnames: MARENGO EKMAN BARTELL SHULZ
I am looking for information about Gary Emmet MARENGO, born 1947 died 1983 in Hennepin County, Minnesota. He was the only child (I believe) of Nellie Augusta EKMAN (b 1910 Oregon d 1998 Minnesota) and Emmet Loren MARENGO (b 1912 d 1988 both in Minnesota). I am trying to trace desdendants of an EKMAN line and would like to know whether Gary had any children. He was married twice, first in 1966 (his wife Linda Helen BARTELL died in 1970) and then in 1983 a few months before his death to Pamela J. SHULZ. I have seen a photo of his first wife and she has a baby on her knee, but I can't find any further information -- the child may have been a niece or nephew, or even a friend's baby.

I would be very grateful for any information.

I am the Pam Schulz that was married to Gary Marengo for six months in 983. I never met his children, but I believe he had two from his marriage to Linda, and I think their names were Matt and Mark. I also received a phone call from a young man probably 15 years ago or so claiming to be Gary's son from a high school graduate night one-night stand. I do not recall his name - I only talked to him via telephone once. He said Gary did not know that he was his son. Gary was the only child of Gus and Em Marengo.

Sorry for such a delayed response. I am unable to locate a copy of my marriage license to Gary and googled him and found your query.

Dear Pam,

Thanks so much for getting in touch. My interest in Gary is that he was an Ekman descendant through his mother, and at the time the Ekman family was planning a re-union (eventually plans were abandoned because few of us could make it). I realize this is probably difficult for you, but do you know who was looking after his sons? Was it his grandparents?

Many thanks,
Laurie

Not difficult at all. It was a long time ago. Both of Gary's parents have passed away. As far as I know, his sons' mother's parents had custody of the boys. I'm sorry I'm not much help, but as I said, I never met them. I don't believe he had any contact with them at all. At least not as long as I knew him, which was a little over two years, I think. I did meet his mother, Augusta (Gus)(Ekman) and his father, Emmett (Em), and a cousin in Stillwater, MN once - I think his name was Steve. But, that is about the extent of it.

Sorry I don't have more information for you.

Pam
