Meredeth and family - I'm sorry beyond words for your loss. I worked with Gary for 9 years at the PD and enjoyed every single minute of it. He was a fine officer, and an even finer person.

Gary was a good friend as well as a dedicated officer. As chaplain I went with him on several death notifications-now I see his. May God’s hand of blessing be upon his family and upon his blue family
