Gary was my "cute" neighbor, growing up. When we were young, he would come over and throw footballs with me and my brothers in the back yard.
Being the animal lover I am, I also have good memories of him laying in the grass talking and playing with his beagle, Snoopy .
After moving out on his own, when he was in town visiting his parents, he would never miss the opportunity to wave a "hello" to us next door if we were outside or sitting on the patio.
I pray that Joanne and Allen have strength to get through this and know he was a wonderful son.. he lived a good, adventurous, accomplished life... be proud of him. All my love, Karen (Steinbach) Happnie
