So very sorry to hear about Gary's passing. I remember him from childhood as a jokester with a carefree attitude. Mom and dad would occasionally share jokes that he sent them and still as an adult I will remember his fun-loving, comedic personality. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Darren, Andy and all his family and friends.

So sorry to hear of Gary's passing, and our thoughts and prayers are with Liz and her family. I've known Gary for many years, and grew up with Liz. We lived a couple hundred miles apart, but every contact has always been pleasant and memorable. Liz and Gary were regulars at AC Class of 67 events and gatherings, and Gary would always pitch in and work preparing for events, and work hard at cleanup after. We will miss his smile, jokes, and quick wit, and appreciated his consideration for others.
