I worked with Gary for a number of years. He was not only a co-worker, but a friend as well. We have many good memories of visits when our families would get together, and of course many good memories while working with him. He was always willing to help with any challenge that would come up. God Bless Sally , Daniel and all the members of Gary's family. May he rest in peace.
