Gary and I both worked at my dads station at second&broadway. It was a hangout spot for hotrods and racecars and i'm certain Gary was influenced for his love of cars from that location. Gary was very funny and got funnier with addition of beer.We shared many special moments and he was amazed that we lived through our glory days. He most certainly will be missed. I will never forget him.
I am so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed when Gary would come into Critter's and have a PBR! Such a nice quiet man with a huge heart. May he rest in peace!
Gary gave me a lot of support while I was in business in Crooks and I appreciated both him and Deb.You've been a good man Gary
So very sorry for your family. Gary was a classmate. Keeping you
in my prayers.
