I am so saddened and shocked at the news of Gary's passing. My memories of him stand out as a man who always said "yes" when asked if he could do a job of any size, and usually with a sense of humor.. He was always in motion and willing to help me, but most of all I will always remember his strength of character; a trait he certainly instilled in his son Darren. He will be missed and certainly not replaced. Prayers and condolences. Jerre Moriarty
