Prayer and strength for the family in their time of sorrow. I can only imagine how he will be missed, as he was truly missed from the Waterford 3 family upon retirement. I personally miss seeing him at Walmart after retirement.

Back in 1987 Gary made a profound statement to me with regards to work: It's either right, or it aint right! Which is why I valued his tending to paperwork on the jobs we worked. Rest in Peace, Gary.

Gary was one of the best mechanics in the group when I was at Waterford 3. Nicest guy to work with and you could always trust his work.
