I just found out about Gary when I dropped my vehicle off for repair. He was always friendly and helpful and we always talked about our dogs. He will be greatly missed. My sympathy to family and friends. Bonnie

Just found out about Gary at Outten this morning. He was my service guy here for 15 years. He was always quick with a joke, never BS’d me, and was always fair. He was also very good to my late step-father, Steve. He will be missed!

Susie and Paul, Greg and I are so sorry to read of the death of your son. I remember taking pictures of him and our first daughter at my parents house so many years ago when they were babies! Please know that Greg and I are sending love and prayers to you both during these difficult times. Susie, I have thought of you often over the years and would love to get in touch!

Very sorry to learn of Gary's passing. I only knew him through Outten, and I always looked forward to chatting with him when I dropped off my vehicle for service. He always had a big smile, a hearty laugh and a kind word, and I will certainly miss that. My deepest sympathies to his family, friends and loved ones.

I was so sorry to hear about Gary. We spent many years during school sitting next to each other in homeroom or sharing space at our lockers. We were alphabetically tied together. He was always so sweet and had a big smile. It was a good way to start the day. My condolences to his family and all whose lives he touched.
