Gary was a friend from our childhood in Redfield, SD and lived just a few doors down from me, We spent many great times together then and throughout our lives. Gary was always a positive person even through some tough health issues. While we now live in Wa state we still kept in touch. Jean and I were both classmates with Gary at RHS 1964. A great friend, a great father and a great husband. We will miss you forever!
