I worked with Gary at Santa Rosa's Information Mgmt. Dept. He was our manager for several years. I will remember him as a very caring, fun loving person. I respected and loved him as a dear friend, co-worker & manager.

Gary always talked to us about his family. Especially Erik. How he loved his son and his wife Shirley very much. If you ever need anything just write to me at this e-mail address.

My sympathy and regards go out to his entire family and friends. As I know we all will miss him dearly.

Sincerely, Leslie

He was a Great Boss and a Good Friend. His stories of going home to be with his family up north were always amusing. He said some called it hunting, to him it was a time to be with family and to enjoy the outdoors. He will be missed by those of us who had the opportunity to work with him as well as those of us who had the opportunity to be his friends.

We are very saddened and shocked over Gary going home to be with the Lord. Please let us know if there is anything at all we can do for you. There aren't any words to relieve the pain but only time can ease it.
I always enjoyed the boy's hockey games with you and Gary. He was such a great guy and I never felt uncomfortable around him. A true gentleman and down to earth. What Jesus called the salt

Gary, it's been a long time since we all met but it went by in an instant. How was I to know you would turn out to be such a good friend? I will miss the way your eyes twinkled when you smiled and laughed, and how you would come up behind me as I worked, pat my shoulder and say, "You ok, Kiddo?". You were so supportive and helpful, no matter what. I'll miss ragging you every day because

Shirley, I am so saddened to hear about Gary. I worked with him during the entire time he was at Santa Rosa. We always had such enjoyable conversations.
May the Lord bless you and your family and may your faith sustain you.
I am sorry that I will not be able to attend the service this evening but my prayers are with you and Erik.

Dear Shirley, Erik, & Family,

We first met Gary in early 1970's--a hippy-ish guy who won our hearts. Lastly, a businessman in suit & tie.

We're so proud that he became a part of our family. We enjoyed him as a cousin for the past "26" years.

We'll always love him & miss him with all of you.

Love, Jeannie & Jim
