Gopher Athletics Establishes Gary Tinsley Memorial Fund

For those of you who wish to contribute financially to help pay for some of the Gary Tinsley funeral costs and to also help pay for some of his Gopher teammates to attend the funeral in Florida, the University has established a memorial fund for fans to contribute.

Gopher Athletics announced the establishment of the Gary Tinsley Memorial Fund today. The memorial fund has been established in remembrance of Tinsley, a four-year letterwinner at Minnesota as a linebacker who was just weeks away from receiving his bachelor's degree in business and marketing education when he passed away Friday morning.

Managed by Gopher Athletics' Golden Gopher Fund, the memorial fund will provide fans with an opportunity to help off-set Gary's funeral expenses as well as the travel costs for his teammates to attend his funeral in Florida.

Fans interested in donating to the Gary Tinsley Memorial Fund may do so via the Golden Gopher Fund website at There is also a direct link to the Golden Gopher Fund website on the front page of
