Gary was a special friend and will be missed daily. When we think of him we will remember the smiles, the humor, and the friendship we shared. We are thankful for that time, but feel he left us way too soon.
Rest in Peace Dear Friend.

Brittany and Patrick,
I am so sorry to hear about your dad. He was a very special guy and always wanted the best for you. I considered him a friend and not just a coworker. He helped me when I was going through some hard times. Your grandmother Mickey helped me at my first job and I was only too happy to do the same for Gooby. He has been in my thoughts frequently since leaving Dayton. You and the rest of your family will be in my thoughts and prayers as you adjust to not having him around physically. Keep him close in your hearts always.

I remember Gary anytime we played baseball. He was always a good player, and was always fun for him. Until we meet again Gary! Steve
