I am shocked to hear about Gary’s passing. I have many great memories of growing up in the neighborhood playing pick-up baseball, basketball and football with Gary. As many have stated, Gary helped everyone in the town, especially the neighborhood where I know he kept a good eye on my dad until he passed. Dad also really like Gary. We lost a good man…I know he is in a better place with people who love him. See you one day soon my friend.

Gary has been a lifelong friend since he was 5 years old. He cared about his village and loved all his neighbors and friends. He had a heart of gold and checked on his neighbors, and we all watched him and loved him. Gladys and I are absolutely still in shock over his passing. He called my mom, his “mom” after his beloved mother, and neighbor, passed. Gary is in a wonderful place now, in the arms of the Lord.
