The few words we could use to describe our brother in Christ would be Family man, Gary was so proud of his family, at gatherings for Christmas & Thanksgiving he literally beamed with joy to watch his family and extended family as well enjoy themselves & share the joy of the season. His dedication thru out his years of faith in our Lord was something that sustained our Brother in later years, his passing was a gift of a Merciful God, May He Rest In Peace

Mr. Gary performed the service for my mother when she passed I would of never found anyone more suitable to perform the service. Love and prayers for the Richard family. Ms Dot Gary and Trish. Just know he is in very good company.

Dotty I am sorry to hear about Gary. I enjoyed the times Gary and you came to camp meetings. There wasn't a dull moment when he was around. He is in a better place with Lord. I will keep you and your family in prayer that the Lord will give you peace and comfort to you all and one day you all will see him again.
