We all knew that this time would come, but all the same it came as stunning shock. COVID has robbed us of a opportunity to say goodbye and to hold you, Dottie, close and share our grief.

In our hearts we will long carry wonderful memories of a kind and gentle friend.

Love,

Nancy and Bruce

Gary was a prince of a man .. he was my fraternity brother from the 60s @ Virginia Tech. Gary was uniformly kind & engaging with those he came in contact with and he was fiercely loyal to his friends .. and especially his fellow TEK fraternity brothers with whom he kept in close contact with over the years. During his years of debilitating illness I never heard a single complaint .. he accepted the limits his physical body imposed & made the best of every encounter & every day. I thank God that he was in my life & know that he planning a great TEK reunion in the heavens for his brothers. He adored Dottie and their union was a beautiful example of the sacrament of marriage. God bless you Gary.
