I was a friend of Carol’s for over 40 years, and was in a Bible study and a Purdue Extension Homemakers group with her. I knew Gary through Carol. Blaine, I’m happy to hear you and you’re wife are expecting a baby! Your parents would have been thrilled to have a grandchild! May God bless and comfort you all in your grief.

Blessings, Carolyn Lovell

Uncle Gary will forever be missed. He is partying it up with Grandma, Grandpa & Aunt Carol and watching over all of us. My son Aiden (Uncle Gary's Great Great nephew) absolutely adored his Great Great Uncle Gary and loved playing with him last year when he visited us in California.
Uncle Gary was always so kind and loving, he always was interested in what you were up to next and what was going on in your life!

I will forever miss him and leave my love to my cousin Blaine & his wife Katy (& their coming soon baby). Our family is saddened by the loss of another family member. Uncle Gary was survived by many family members & his memory will never be forgotten as we will all share his memory with our children and our children's children.

Forever our love,
Luis, Madison & Aiden Lamoreaux <3
