You'll be in my heart forever. You had a gift like no other. You'll be missed terribly. I feel blessed to have been with you and your family those last days. You gave more to others than most, with that infectious smile that was in your eyes i can still see. I know youve moved on to a place where you have no more pain, though you never complained once. I watched you try and help people up to your rest. It was a privilege to have you as a cousin and freind, you are truly a great person and ill always remember the gifts you shared so freely with everyone

I remember when all of our boys were young in Deer Park playing sports together and all of the times we were at your house for bbqs or just hanging out. My boys always looked up to Gary and Tonya as positive roll models. I will never forget Gary's infectious laugh. I am grateful for the friendship Jerry and I had with Gary and Tonya. You will be greatly missed Gary. I'm praying for comfort for Tonya and the kids. God bless.

I am so happy we had the wonderful luck of meeting both Tonya and Gary! From outdoor BBQ'S to watching Dale and Gary trying to see who could get who with cold water. And it didn't matter if they were inside or outside; dressed or in the shower! I also treasure our last few visits. I am so happy I got to have them. Love you❤️

Everytime I think of Gary and Tonya the first memory that pops into my mind is when I was riding my bike barefoot and cut the bottom of my foot really bad. My dad was holding me and as soon as my mom took one look at my foot she passed out and Gary had to catch her. I will never forget wheeling my stool back and forth from our house to your house because I couldn't walk.

We have known Gary and Tonya for about a year, in that short time they have truly become our best friends. Shorty after meeting them Gary was diagnosed with cancer. He always told us that he wishes he would have met us before he got sick, but in that time you made a huge impact on our hearts. You have one of the biggiest hearts we know and you gave cancer a tough fight. Until we meet again our friend ❤️❤️

I have not seen Gary for so long I can remember his face like yesterday. I remember the summer days spent at your home. Gary and I really bonded and he ment so much to me. I can remember his laugh, his love for his family, Gary was a very special friend, I am sad inside to know I can not visit him in person, but I am glad he is no in pain anymore. I love you and and wish your family strength through this. Love you

This is very hard for me to write. I am so sorry for your loss. We all lost a great man and brother. I was so glad I was able to see Gary last month. When I left it was hard. Gary taught me so much about the union. Gary was so proud of his boys on everything they did, from playing basketball to dance. Don't forget his other son following in his union steps. Tonya stand up and be strong Gary is looking down on you and your family.

My husbands Rudy and I have nothing but happy memories of our friendship with Gary and his whole family from many years ago when our boys were young. Every memory is one of his infectious smile along with that laugh that was never a dull moment. We were so fortunate and cherish the time we had with him again not so long ago. We will miss him dearly until we all meet again to pick up where we left off.
