Oh God, how much I want to be able to share in your grief. He was such a wonderful man wrapped up in a small, perfect body. Please call me. 765-228-1781. I would to be able to buy some of his albums that we spent so much time listening and dancing to. Or be able to find the picture of us kissing in the van.

Very sorry to learn about the passing of Gary. I met him at Ontario Forge and was his colleague for many years. He was a talented guy, with a great personality and kind to everyone. I extend my sincere condolences to his family.

Gary was a fantastic person. I loved him years ago and I've always loved him since then. I have so many good memories and a few not so good. I love all you kids and hate that you are going through this. Memories, I couldn't possible list them all. Golf (which he so patiently taught me), bowling on teams with him, dancing, fireworks (remember the big one we did with a bunch of people? God, this is so awful. Please get ahold of me. 7652281782. I love you guys

Gary was one of my older half brothers, last time we seen each other was when he came to Florida on a vacation. That was 30 plus years ago. We all went out to the Rockin Ranch and party the night away. He was a fun person to be around. I truly miss him. Rest in peace brother Gary.

I am sorry to hear of Gary's passing and his families loss. I regret not spending more time with him over the years. One of my fondest memories of Gary is when I was 12 and he was newly wed to Molly. Gary and I would trade punches (on our shoulders) as I was fighting for Molly as I had a crush on her. It was all in fun. Gary also had a great since of humor. I will always remember him as my funny, positive full of energy brother.

I am so sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. I still consider him family even though it has been many years since Larry and I were married. A lot of memories of him and Molly. We were all so young back then. Married to our first loves and then children to love and care for. Larry and I moved to Florida in 1967 so we didn’t see much of each other but when we did it was always a special time. He was a very special person, so many good memories.
