Dave and I have fond memories of Gary from our school days. He remained kind and friendly over the years and we would always chat and give a quick hug when our paths crossed… Our prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time of loss and sorrow… Hug Brian on the other side for me…

Condolences to Sherrie and all of Gary’s children, grandchildren and siblings. Gary was an inspiration to me when he came over for a short visit to our farm. He had encouraging words to say. He always had a smile. Deepest sympathy to his family
