Best childhood friend. Many many memories. Gary was master chef for fried bologna sandwiches, carmel corn and getting asked to stay for home made pizza was really special. His dad would bring home cans of slightly overdone potato chips which were really great. Not going to go into some of the stuff we got into as kids...the good news was that we were not arrested for any of it.

Gary was one of the finest men I have known. He was always honest and helpful in all his business dealings. He always conducted himself in a very good manner. He cared about people and was a friend to so many people. He was a man of integrity and fairness.

He was a man of faith. He cared about the less fortunate and the needy. Gary treated all people with kindness.

Gary's lives on. The spirit that gave his physical body life, lives on. There is a grand purpose to all of our lives. We have all been created by a Father in Heaven who loves us and has a plan for each of us. Life goes on beyond the grave. Loving relationships with family and friends continues beyond the grave. Gary will be reunited with loved ones and friends in a coming day. Without this hope and expectation, this life would be most miserable and empty. In the end, it is the love of family and friendships that we take with us when we pass from this life. These are the things most important.

I am so thankful for having known Gary for many, many years; for all my associations with him, for his constant, good example to me. I am a better man for having had association with Gary Abbate.

When we lived next door, Gary would bring home left overs for my dog Drew. So many fond memories of his kindnesses and so much fun to be with. Peace be with you Gary. You will be missed!
