I was honored to be a friend of Gary’s and to be a member of his law enforcement family! I will forever consider him a perfect example of the true measure of a man. We spent many shifts together taking care of each other and our Police family. Recently our fun at the Elks’s lodge singing and enjoying Thursday night Karaoke. His voice will always be remembered in this dispatchers ears and heart.
