I was very sorry to hear the passing of your father. Seeing the pictures of your mother and father especially of their wedding has brought back many happy memories. Thinking of you both always.

Very sorry to hear about Gary, sailed with Gary on the Huron years ago, was on the receiving end of his pranks and then some. He always made the watches at sea interesting and cared about his shipmates, a friend to everyone. Rest in peace Gary.

For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's. (Romans 14:8) Rest in peace Gary, it was a privilege to have known you. God bless to all your family, and may you celebrate his life with joy in your hearts.
Sincerely, Mike Loyal, retired PO2 ERA.

As a small contractor, I knew your Dad through his employment at Kent, in New Minas and in all the times I went through that gate, he always had a cheery greeting and often a one-liner to show his navy was the best navy. He is and will always be missed.

Gary was a great guy, did a nato with him on the athabaskan in 99. After many beers in amserdam i final convinced him to get on the sky wheel and round up. Although he almost threw up it was funny as hell watching his facial expressions. He will be missed by al who knew him.
