I was sad to hear about the loss. Gary and I have been friends for over 40 years. He was a kind, gentle soul and very good hearted. He loved life and was considerate of others. He was deeply committed to taking care of both of his parents until they passed away. All 3 of them will be thrilled to see each other and be reunited in Heaven! May he Rest In Peace.

I was so sad to hear of Gary’s passing. Gary was a long time friend whom I met when we lived in Austin. After he moved back to Beaumont and I to Houston, we stayed in touch and would occasionally get a chance to go to the casino together. I enjoyed our conversations and just seeing him from time to time. He was a kind and funny man whom I will surely miss. May you rest in peace my dear friend.
