I will also remembered Gary with a big smile...he would phone me up and in his "booming voice...say Andy it's Gar" he never failed to ask "how's your hubby."..before rattling off a request.

I loved seeing him tooling around Buzzards Bay on his scooter...big grin and white mop of hair blowing in the breeze...That is the image of "Gar" I will hold.

Many thanks to Kathy for her never ending kindness and care of himself.
Peace Andy

I was saddened this morning to learn of Gary's passing. My deepest condolences to his family. I remember the band that he played in during the years of 1971-72; in Mr. Hayward's music room at Henry T. Wing high school. We would gather around the open door and listen to the most excellent rock and roll that four guys could produce. It was that good. I had talked to Gary on numerous occasions about music and about things in general. The last time was in a club in Falmouth when he was playing a gig with Shady Lane. I wish his family peace. Godspeed bro. When you get up there, say hi to Ginger for me.

Sad to hear of Gary passing. He was a good guy. Probably one of the most talented natural drummers I’ve ever known. I enjoyed his playing and him as a person. He will be missed.

Anita & Erin,
I was sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. He was a talented musician and took pride in his job as a janitor of the Henry T Wing school. He worked hard keeping the school clean and the floors shining! I enjoyed listening to him playing the drums. I remember his love for cooking on the grill. I’m just sorry time ran out so quickly. May you both find peace within to heal. Love you both!
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Dad, I am so sad right now, and the words aren't easy. I am sorry about the time lost with you, and now your gone. Things happen in families, there are ups and downs, and we didn't change soon enough.
I have always loved you, and always will. I will speak to you in private, and think of our earlier days together. Love, Erin
