My brother-in-law, Gary, was a a very warm and loving man. I will never forget this most kind Tennessean gentleman who insisted that his very recently bereaved sister-in-law and her three year old daughter to accompany Kathy and himself, along with Allyn and his buddy on a long RV vacation to Gatlinburg,TN and Cherokee, NC.. It was a wonderful time filled with lots of laughter and love. This trip was only two years after his marriage to Kathy, but it is an essence of what Gary was like throughout his life. Love and Miss you, Pam

I was first introduced and worked with Gary at Copelands, for many years.
We then started playing in a poker club with several fellow employees, Bill M.,Gary M., Dick L., Jerry B.,Dick S, myself and numerous other players. Gary was always ready for a game but I think he just came for the food at the various homes and to tell a joke or two. Kathy my prayers are with you and the family. God Bless.

Sorry for your loss, Gary was a great person. Your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I remember the fun times we had at Copeland and at Ikeda. May it be in the office or at the ball diamond we always had a laugh or two.
