Im so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort help you during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,5 & Psalms 83:18). Jesus prayed for Gods Kingdom to come because He knew it would be able to solve all mankinds problems even death. (Revelation 21:3-5).

I am going to miss Gary. Always positive and upbeat. A person who was for sure larger than life. I enjoyed the many talks we had about cars, guns, "cop stuff" (civilian and military), motorcycles and all kinds of cool guy stuff as well as working with him on the Safety Team at church. I am honored to have known Gary as a friend, a true friend.

Gary was an amazing father to my husband and grandfather to our children. He always talked about how he was going to build our son a huge train track to go around the Christmas tree. He loved our children and was a proud Papa. We loved every moment with him
