I was in Gary's class and he was the intelligent one always doing special projects. Gary was a quiet person and very soft spoken person. He will be missed at the reunions. Rest in peace Gary.

I attended Fair Grove with Gary and remember him for his kindness, manners and intelligence. Since 1999 when we had reunions for the class of 1961, Gary was always the first to respond that he would be attending. It was always a pleasure to see him. He will be missed.
