Gary was a such selfless, kind and loving man! Wish I could hug you right now in this immediate time of deep loss. Please know your Habitat family is here for you.

When I think of the many, many lives he has invested in, I know without a doubt Gary heard these loving words as he transitioned to his beautiful new life, “well done good and faithful servant!” His love lives on in our hearts and countless others!

I have fond memories of Gary from way back in our raquetball league days at Work Out West. Gary played at only one speed....and that full speed. One time he was chasing the ball with such focus that he crashed into the side wall, knocking himself unconscious. We revived him, got a couple of bandages placed on the gash on his forehead, and of course continued the game. Classic. He was a fun teammate and a great dental patient. We all will miss him.

Pat and Family:
You are in my prayers. Gary is in heaven with our Father. No more pain—only joy and peace. I have been where you are (5 years now), and I know how much it hurts. Put your trust in the Lord and He will carry you through these dark days. God will be with you.

I'll always remember Gary coming in to the Habitat office early in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee and camaraderie with the construction team. With a smile on his face and kindness in his heart, Gary volunteered his time working selflessly helping others. Gary touched so many people's lives and I am grateful to have known him.
