My Dearest Brother,
You have been such a great role model, brother, son, father, grandfather, and friend to all of us. I am so fortunate to have been blessed with such a wonderful brother and friend. The times we have shared together and the laughs we "created" will last forever with you, me, and a lot of others. I am so proud of you for everything you have done and accomplished and especially for the courageous fight you have shown in

Maureen and Family-
Even though it's been a very long time since I have seen you and Gary, I have been getting an occasional update and praying for you all from afar. I was so saddened to hear of Gary's passing and hope that you all can take comfort in knowing that Gary touched so many people through the years, myself included.
My most vivid memories of the two of you are of course tied to our many years of baseball

Thank you for all the great memories you left with your family and thank you for being a father I was able to learn so much from. I could not have asked for a better father. It’s hard to think about how your time was cut short and right now it just doesn’t seem fair. We all held out HOPE till the end and the fight you put up inspired us all. You displayed so much courage, strength, and determination

You will truly be missed coach. There were many things I learned from you on and off the basketball court, and for that I will always be grateful. I know how proud you are of Eric and Tyler, and I know they will both strive to be as great a man as you. Your memory will live forever. Rest in Peace Gary.

Oh how you will be so missed Uncle Gary. There are so many wonderful words that describe the type of person you are and just as many memories to keep me smiling and laughing. I hope you know how very special you are to me and that you will be in my heart and mind always until I see you again. You are a true representation of strength and courage and have inspired me in so many ways. I love you and miss you so much.
