I'm so sorry to hear of Gary's passing. I will miss having him on car tours with the Horseless Carriage Club. I have many happy memories of him and Margaret on the tours.

We are so sorry to hear about the passing of our friend, Gary. We always saw him at the swap meets/car shows in the Smith & Jones booth. Gary always greeted us with a welcoming smile at the Moultrie, Zephyrhills & Fletcher shows, to name a few. Very special man. Our thoughts & prayers go out to Margaret, the rest of the family & all of the other great Smith & Jones associates. He will be missed!
Blessings, Steve & Kathy
