  1. Gary, you were and always will be in my heart and soul. You have always been a true friend. I will miss you dearly.

    Gary always had a smile on his face, he would make me smile and he could always tell when i was having a bad day, he would come up to me and say "hey, tomorrow is another day, if it's not done today --there will be tomorrow!

    Gary may you rest in peace, you will forever be missed. God Bless......Your friend Sandra V.

  2. Gary, you have left us all too soon but I know all the good in you will live on through the legacy of your family. God bless!

    Gary is in a better place. God Bless You, Gary!

  5. Gary had a tremendous impact on me as a young Air Force Airman at Clark Air Base, PI. He was always willing to help guide us young folks and ensured we understood what it meant to truly serve.

    GOD bless you Gary...and thanks for the many memories.
