My thoughts and prayers to the family. I truly enjoyed my time with Gary when I was the, Executive Director, at The Landing of Canton. He would.come search me.out and spend time in my office. He was a wonderful man and I'm honored to have known him.

I was so sorry to hear of Gary's passing. Larry and Gary worked at Monarch together and Larry stood up with Gary when he and Joyce were married. We have many fond memories of our time in Ohio and the Halloween parties at their house. Gary was a wonderful friend and will be missed
