My Uncle Gary was truly one of a kind. An original down to his core. He was taken from us way too soon and while I know it will be tough on my Aunt Vicky and my cousin Norman, I know that he instilled in Norman what it takes to adapt and get through most situations to include this one. Between myself, and Norman and our middle cousin Bryan growing up together we went on many a trip with Uncle Gary to U of Illinois games or other locations and no matter our age he would gage our thoughts on life, politics, sports, or make us crack up with a joke that we might not of even understood but we all laughed because it was Uncle Gary just being himself. All of my memories of him are great and I always loved talking with him and learning a lot from his view of the world as he knew it. I know that he had a lot if changes to his life in recent years that didn't make life easy and though it changed him in many ways it didn't change the legacy he left and the awesome son he raised in my little cousin Norman T... Yes he's little! Hell always be my little cousin! I miss you Uncle Gary and I sure hope they were ready for you up there. I know Heavan is already a better place because you are there. RIP Uncle Gary you deserve it! I love you!
Gary was one of my co-workers at TCRC. He was a hardworking great guy. I will miss him and I know all his co-workers on our team will too. He is in peace now. An Angel watching over all of us. God Bless Gary and Gary's family.
Vicky & Family,
Praying for your entire family. May the Good Lord bless you & comfort you in your time of sorrow.
Sincerely, Rick & Lesa Griffin
My dad will be missed greatly by our whole family. It makes me sad every time Hailey asks where Grandpa Gary is. My dad always put his family first. Everyone who knew my dad enjoyed being around him with his unique sense of humor. My dad worked hard his entire life even after many setbacks he could not control. Grandpa Gary will be deeply missed.
Vicky and Norm
So sorry to hear about Gary. There are so many great memories that I have... Like the time when I bought the Mitsubishi or the times when he would guide us through the Gus Macker. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
