Gary was my whole world. He was a very loving and special man. I am forever bereft without him. But he lives in my heart forever and someday soon we will be reunited on the other side. He is resting in the everlasting arms of God.

I love you always

Your wife Debra

I will miss seeing your genuine smile and bald head nodding in agreement amongst the family at Village Church. You could always be found sitting in the same chair, same row... I imagine the Lord has a special seat for you in Heaven.

I will miss you Gary very much. As a brother in Christ, we have shared many prayers together, Scriptures, and topics about Jesus. I have been a part of your family for many, many years. There has been times of many laughs together with his Mother, Shirley at the "Bingo Hall" in Swanzey for our Church meetings . Which became "The Village Church. Now located on Cobble Hill Road in Swanzey. I will always treasure our time sitting together with my husband, Ron at Village Church during the Services. We would always look for each other to see if we were there. With a smile on our face when we would see each other. All my love and prayers to all the family. Pat Callahan

I went to school with Gary. We did a lot of silly clowning around. We also worked a couple early jobs together: in high school I was assistant janitor at Thayer and he worked with his grandfather at the old Center School in Winchester. Later we worked at O'Neill's Paper Mill in Ashuelot. We took Driver's Ed in Keene so we could get our drivers license's, our Mom's taking turns driving us to class. Sometimes if class got out early we'd go to Dunkin Donuts and buy a dozen donuts--each--and pig out on donuts while we waited for one of our moms to pick us up (I couldn't eat a half dozen donuts now, I don't know how I did it when I was sixteen). But the years went by and adulthood came along and we lost contact. I will miss Gary, as all who knew him will. See you later old friend...
