Condolence: Jan, We had many good times with you & Gary at both your place & ours. You two were great company. So sorry to hear of Gary passing. We instantly liked Gary from the first time we met him when he was working over at the new Dollar Video store on N. High Street. Gary was easy going & cheerful at all times. He was fun to be around. We listened to Jazz & told jokes endlessly as well as conversed on many diverse topics. We will always think of you two as being together. It was a privilege to be friends with you & Gary.

Condolence: I am so sorry to learn of Gary passing. I worked with him in the Auditor’s office. He was such a kind soul. He made the last few years there tolerable. He had a joke or funny story to share every morning, starting the day off with a chuckle. He often spoke of his grand children and his pets. My husband has fond memories of him when he worked in the clerks office.
Rest in heaven Gary. We’re all better for having known you.
