When I remember Gary, I'll always think of him with his big laugh, and laughing along with him. He had such a passion for enjoying life that it would infect you immediately. You couldn't ask for anyone more loyal and loving to his friends and family, no matter how far away you were. There was nothing he wouldn't do for you. It feels like the sun just dimmed a bit in this world. We will miss him always.
Judy, Kelly, and Lisa, our love and prayers are with you all.

I met Gary in 1969 through Judy's brother, Don. What a wonderfully warm and humorious person. He never met a stranger and was the life of the party at all times. He loved his wife and family, including in-laws, nieces and nephews and EVERYONE loved him. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him, including me and especially my girls who always looked up to him. My sincere condolences and prayers are with you Judy, Kelly, Andree and Emma, Lisa, Shawn, McKenzie and Matthew. I know how much y'all loved him.
