I’ll never forget the times I was able to spend with you. All the all times fishing, playing rummikube, sharing bowls of pork rinds- just to name a few. Iv always admired you and the love that you and Grammy shared. I’ll never forget you and you will always hold a very special place in my heart.

Gary was very good friend to so many.I met Gary in 1972 he taught me what a man should and shouldn't be. Where ever Gary was people wanted to be around him. He made his mark on us all. May God bless his family.May God Bless us all

Oh where do I start. Uncle Gary was the world's best Uncle. It never failed when he seen me he always gave me a huge bear hug where I couldnt breath. To see the love between him and Aunt Patty sure was beautiful. He will be missed and his legend will carry on through all his sons and my cousins. RIH Uncle Gary until we meet again..love you bunches

I don’t know where to begin...I’m going to miss you so much. I loved everytime you came to visit and all the stories you would tell about dad and you as kids and adults. I’m going to miss the Bowling Alley lunches, pear picking at your house and all our phone conversations. Another piece of my heart is gone. Give dad a big hug for me. Until we meet again here is one last tight hug and big kiss!💔
