Gary was the guy who always lent a helping hand. He was instrumental in bringing up-to-date technology to his church. He loved sharing pictures of church activities on the big screen. He served faithfully on his church’s Consistory. I was blessed to serve with him as I got to know his kind and generous heart. Until we meet again my friend!
