I'm very sad to learn of Garry's passing, but feel blessed that I knew him. He came across to me as a kind and honest man. I enjoyed hearing his laugh and will miss him. God Bless.

We met Kathy and Gary when they moved into the neighborhood 35+ years ago. Throughout the years Gary and I had many 'over the fence' chats, went mushroom hunting and enjoyed a mini vacation in Las Vegas. Gary was a great friend and will be missed. Kathy and the family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear about Garry's death. We grew up together and I remember laughing a lot with him! We spent one summer working together in William Jewell's gift shop, My Dad performed his wedding. My prayers are with all his family and friends.
