To the Family of Gary, So sad to hear of the passing of Gary. Gary and I were High School class mates and grew up in the same neighborhood on the West Side. Gary and I spent many hours at his house house with his many hobby's. The one I recall the most was his interest in radios and how they worked and flying model airplanes. I recall the time a plane got away from us and it seamed like we chased it to Watertown before we caught it. After High School we sort of lost contact with each other I think as most of us do but in later years we did e-mail. Time has clouded the many memories that I know Gary and I had, maybe that is a good thing. Rest in peace Gary you will never be forgotten. Your Friend always, Charlie

Rose and family -- Our deepest sympathies are with you. Gary will be missed by many, including ourselves. Flying model airplanes at Alice's. Lunch at Jacqlons, and laughing at all our bad jokes and sharing many family memories. There was and always will be -- only one Gary -- and he will be missed.

Grandpa Gary was always so kind to me, and I will miss his chuckle and sense of humor. My favorite memory will always be when he shared chocolate with me at Dwayne's wedding to my mom, which my sisters and I ate with our white gloves on without being scolded. Grandpa Gary also introduced me to the Scottish games and I was intrigued with his bagpipe music. I will miss him and am so glad he was in my life.

Dearest Rose and family, I am so sorry for your lost. My favorite memory of your father was when he brought Rose to the. Temple bus at 1:00am and play the bagpipes waking the neighbors around the chapel and letting those on the other side of the veil that we were completely and more will be joining them. I always felt special when he did this. I believe it was a significant part of his testimony. Gary was a very special person.

Sad to hear of Gary's passing, remember well the many times he would stop by Kwik Trip and share his humor with all of us, remember his excitement when he mentioned he was going to learn to play bag pipes, even got to hear him play. He indeed will be missed, he wore his kilt with pride and looked good!!!! RIP.
