My uncle Gary has always been there for me. Through the good and bad. He was just a phone call away. He would give me advice . I’m sure going to miss him. He was my second dad

I really enjoyed when all family’s came to prescott and stayed at moms (Aunt Laverne’s) . We won’t be able to attend the service. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gary’s family.

I first met Gary while he was serving in the United States Marine Corps at Sidi Yahia, Morocco in 1973. He was a wonderful person and a great Marine! He will be missed by all of his Marine Corps family.
