My sympathies to Gary's family. I had not known about his passing until now. And I had no idea that he had brain cancer. I will always remember Gary as a very pleasant person. If memory serves me right, he coached Eric and I's baseball team when we were younger. After many years went by, he came in to buy some trees/plants at my old work, Arbor Farms, and still remembered and recognized me. Please know that he touched many lives in such a positive way.

My thoughts and prayers are with you today. Gary was so kind and helpful to help me when my husband died 5 yrs ago of brain cancer. Gods blessings help us everyday to face what he has planned. Sincerely,Sue Bulmahn.

We were so sorry to hear about Gary's passing. We will be out of town and unable to visit or attend the funeral. It was nice to be able to talk with Gary at the Wall of Fame ceremony. He was a great guy. Your family is in our prayers.
