Gary always took time to let me and Renee to come out to the shop as kids and he even took my daughter Ava out to the wood shop and showed her all his stuff. She loved visiting Georgie and Gary’s with her Nannie, Laura Jean. He was the sweetest and loved his sense of humor . He loved to laugh. He will be truly missed.
