Gary!! I can't believe that you've been gone for eight months. I was so looking forward to seeing you this summer on our common commutes and trading trucking stories.
I know your family misses you so very much. You took such good care of your mom and she took such good care of you including laying you to rest beside your dad and paying for your funeral.
It's so sad to think that I won't be able to share new experiences with you but I know your smiling down at us all and we will keep you in our thoughts.
Jeff and family.

Gary, we miss seeing you in beautiful BC! We were talking about you yesterday and had a good laugh about the funny things you said and did. It's not the same without you. We hope your family is well, especially your Mom. We heard she paid for your funeral. What a great Mom! Always thinking of you, Kate, Lisa, and Joan

Ann, Debbie, Sharon, Barry, Kelly and the rest of Gary's family.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My memories of Gary come from our childhood and being next door neighbours for so many years. Sometimes we don't understand what life has in store for us or our loved ones, but must hold on to the memories in our hearts. Here we will all live forever. Remember him from the heart.

Dear Ann, we were saddened to hear about Gary. I think of him often because I quote him to my kids when they will be traveling in the mountains..."go slow and stay off the brakes"
