Gary, the world has lost a great man when you went to join our heavenly father. I will never forget the first time I met you pulling up to my driveway with my German Shepherd in your car and the wonderful friendship that started that day with both you and your wonderful wife, Jeannie. We will see you in heaven when our time has come too. Bless you!

I did not have the opportunity to meet Gary. Instead, I learned about him with Camie. I had a ‘second’ dad as my male role model. My biological dad, unfortunately, was not around much. I am grateful and blessed Lou was a part of my life. When Lou passed away, I reached out to my Uncle Ron, a preacher, and he suggested the book of James and Ecclesiastes 7: 1-3. I especially loved Ecclesiastes 7: 1-3 1A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than one’s birth. 2 It is better to go to the house of mourning than go to the house of feasting, for that is the end of all men, and the living will lay it to his heart. 3 Sorrow s better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance, the heart is made better. God Bless you all during this difficult time. My sincere condolences.

I will always remember uncle Gary as kind and loving a good laugh! Time spent with him was fun and adventurous. May he Rest In Peace.

Dearest Gary, thank you for taking such good care of my mom and me over the years. I remember how you transformed our first house into a thriving little farm with fresh vegetables, fruit trees and chicken eggs. You taught me to fish at grandpa Courtney’s lake and grandpa Mix’s lake. Somehow you managed to hide a roll top desk and a waterbed from me at Christmas. You dressed as Santa at a Christmas party when Dustin was young. Maybe from your days in the Boy Scouts, you were always trying to make sure people were prepared. You will forever be loved and missed by everyone who knew you, may you rest in peace in heaven with all my grandmas and grandpas. Family, friends and I will do our best to honor your legacy and take care of mom. You will always be the Fred to her Ralph.
