Gary Cherry was my go to guy at Triangle A&E since I have frequented there for thirty years. Gary took care of me and kept all of my art classes in supplies for three decades! I know there are so many teachers he took care of. I could always count on his good humor anytime I saw him. Laughter is about the best gift someone can offer another. Thanks for all of the laughs, Gary! He was such a gift. A life well lived, one who touched many hearts just by encounter. I still love though will be missing Gary Cherry.

Today we said goodbye to a man who's been like a big brother to me since 1983. Gary... You will be missed greatly by all of us at Triangle. We will remember your silly sense of humor, your laugh and your love of family. Today I realized that no one else on this earth calls me Mick. I will miss that every morning. Goodbye dear friend. I will never forget you.

Uncle Gary always made me feel welcome even when I felt like I didn’t belong. He was kind, and funny, and I remember he always enjoyed a good joke. He will be sorely missed.

All my love,

Gary was more than a kind soul.
He understood what it meant to be a good man, and a good father.
He held to his beliefes, but was willing to hear new ideas. He brought so much joy and passion to our lives.
Grumpy you will be

Uncle Gary,
I don’t have one single memory without you smiling, that silly mischievous smile. I will always remember your happy and joking spirit. You always made everyone laugh. I can see you now telling your corny jokes to everyone in heaven. You will be loved and missed forever.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts. Colossians 3:15

I’ll think about you often. I have some great memories of you and Triangle A&E.

I’ll miss you. But now you’re in a place where there is only peace, and there is no pain.

I will keep you and Linda and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

We will cross paths again someday. I was blessed to have known you.
