Gary will definitely be missed. I loved his stories and good humor. His love for Pam, Beth, Chris & Becky was so evident. My heart goes out to all of you.

Great memories from growing up with Gary -- like the time in 9th grade when Gary's wonderful dog wandered into our Algebra class and lay down next to Mrs. Valles' desk. Given the unique teacher that she was, she allowed the dog to stay, commenting that he would be a better student than anyone else in the class (or something like that).

My condolences to Gary's family. I know he will be missed..

Salute. I came into the squadron in early '73, March, I think. I don't think I knew who he was, but there were some fine people in that squadron. Salute, sir. Rest, we have the watch.
