Sorry to hear of your loss. I met him and his sons when I worked at Norandex. He was always a very pleasant person. I pray for your family to be strong.

Some people maintain a low profile but make a big impression on our lives. Gary was one of those people. His kindness and the strength of his character will remain with us forever.
