Our deepest sympathy to all in Gary’s family, We worked with Gary in Vidor ISD when his company provided physical therapy to our students with physical handicaps. He was a very kind and effective Physical Therapist working with our students, families, and staff. He will be truly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Justin and Pam Farinella

I have had the pleasure of knowing Gary for thirty plus years. I met him when he lived in Crockett, Texas. I had just moved to Lovelady,Texas. I was working with the Cornerstone ECI program and needed a physical therapist. We were fast friends. He was a kind soul that would help anyone; gave freely without strings; loved unconditionally his children & family. He made a difference in so many lives that he touched. I remember a home visit we made years ago, the parent had made the decision to place her child in a state facility. Gary completed his evaluation assuring the parent that the child with intensive therapy had a shot at walking one day. They had already made their minds up on the placement. When we left, i burst into tears with the thought of this little one living in a state facility at such a young age. I will never forget what he said to me. "Would you not rather this child be somewhere and someone will love her? " He was correct. I will miss my long time friend, who was always a phone call away. He had the ability to let me see the logic in situations that were difficult. Rest easy, Gary. I know when you hit heaven's gates God said " Well done,, my good and faithful servant." See you on the other side... Cassy

I became acquainted with Gary through my grandsons` physical therapy. We became very good friends and my family thought the world of him. Gary helped numerous children with disabilities and he always did it with a positive good natured attitude. My good friend, I'm going to miss our weekly conversations at therapy. To all of Gary's`family, you have our sympathy and our prayers. May God comfort all of you.
