I am so sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. I will miss his smile and joy of life. Gary was a few months older than me and growing up, we spent lots of time together during holidays and summers at the LeBleu farm. He always made everyfhing more fun. He never lost his faith and love, no matter what crossed his path. Gary was wonderful to our family after Mom and Dad’s deaths, graciously having a family get-together at his cabin after the burials. I know he is with God now and with all our family members who have passed on before him. My love and prayers to Janita, Frankie and Renee. I am sorry I cannot be with you at the services today. Love, Debbie.

I became acquainted with the awesome LeBleu family during the mid 60's. Shortly thereafter Gary became the pesky little brother I never had. He was always fun to be around and often underfoot. Although life took us different directions we often kept in touch via the Internet. Gary always had that crazy sense of humor and loved those around him. He will be missed.

It has been my pleasure to know Gary as a friend and neighbor for the last 13 years. From the first time he introduced himself to me I felt I was saying hi to a friend. He was the kind of person if you needed help with anything and he could help, he would. It was nice spending time hanging out in his garage or on the patio with him. I can remember fondly, when it was time for me to head back home he would most often say, ok brother I’ll catch up with you later.
Well brother, I’ll catch up with you later.

As Gary’s dental team, we were all sad to learn of Gary’s passing. He was always so pleasant to visit with. He will surely be missed. May God bless his soul.

I always looked forward to seeing my cousin Gary cuz he was always up having some fun before during or after whatever had to be done. Maybe it took awhile but he lived long enough to figure it out and his last bunch of years involved giving way more than he received without counting cost. You knew he was all in all the time. I don’t think Gary would have traded one life moment that he spent doing what he wanted for more time. But we sure will miss his smile and laughter. May God Bless.

I had the wonderful opportunity and privilege to meet Mr Gary when he was admitted on to hospice care. I sat at the table with him and we talked for about an hour or so. I learned several things about him that day, 1) he absolutely loved the Lord, and that is where is faith and hope was. He was not afraid of death, as he was sure where he was going. 2) He loved his wife and daughter and that was his only concern in leaving this earth. Although for only a short time, I saw his beautiful heart and spirit that day and I count myself blessed to have met him! My prayers and condolences to his family!

My little brother was a fighter. He always gave it all. He lived a good life and for that we are grateful. I know he went down fighting this horrible disease. One that has visited our family far too often. RIP little brother and say hi to Mom and Dad for me and Renee. Just me and lil' Sis left my Brother.
