Gary will be missed. He was a wonderful Uncle, friend, & father figure. I'm going to miss all of the family trips, & fishing trips we had together. I will most certainly miss him just dropping by for a visit. He was such a pleasure to be around. My heart goes out to the Stinnet family & especially Kara & Jake.

Rest "Easy Gary". We love you and will see you soon.

My prayers go out to Gus and Sherry and Gary's sisters. I have so many fond memories of spending time with Gary growing up in Long Beach, and then fun family times in Texas. The Stinnett's have always been like a second family to the Whitecottons, and Gary was always a big part of that. Please accept my condolences.

My heart is very heavy for the loss of Gary. He grew up with my family and shared his life with James. He always joined us with the rest of the "Pack" at Lake Travis. He was such a fun, loving kid and I will never forget his loyalty to his friends, especially my James, John and Jannis and Bill. I am sorry I could not be there to say "Good By" to a good friend. Sherry and Gus and the whole family, my prayer are with you. Love Jeanne Kopeck

It is hard to put in words when a loss of a loved one is taken too soon. We were shocked and saddened when we heard the news. Our hearts and prayers go out to the entire family. May God Bless you in this time of sorrow.

Even though we have not been able to see each other as we would have liked, my memories of the times that we have spent together were always good and fun times. This is what I will always remember. Jim Fultz, (Gardner, KS)
