  1. My condolences to Gary’s family in their loss. I remember Gary as a student. He was a courteous, thoughtful and conscientious young man. Those characteristics never changed and he always greeted others with a smile and pleasant conversation. I will miss his cheerful and kind thoughts.

  2. My sympathy to the family. Gary was one of my students. I remember him as hardr working student who always was ready to help with things that needed to be taken care of in the classroom.
    He always had happy greeting when we met.

  3. I had not seen much of my older cousin Gary as an adult but have good memories of him being at our place when I was growing up. He was much older than I and I enjoyed the attention he gave the little cousins! I believed he worked for a period for my father, Uncle Vern, when we were living in McGrath. I remember him having a good sense of humor and easy laughter. My sympathy to the family, my thoughts and prayers will be with you.

  4. So sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. My sympathy and prayers go out to you, Pam. He was a good man, We all worked together out at the “state” for quite a while. What I will remember is he always had a smile.

  5. So sorry to hear this Pam. I worked with you and Gary for many years. Always had a good time. Always smiling. Prayers to you and your family during this time
