Rest in peace, my Wolfhound brother from the Vietnam War. Your character and courage will always be an inspiration to those of us who remain.
Gary, you are one of the greastest men I have ever had the pleasure to know. I know you are with Jesus
It is hard to believe that it has been one month since Gary left us. We his friend from the chat room call miss him. there are really no words that can express how we feel about Gary. He was our brother.. we loved him and we miss him. He touched our lives and he made us better people for having known him. We will always be thankful for having known him. We know he waits now on the other side of the wall. Rest well our friend. We love you. All your friends from "Gary's Room".
R.I.P. Gary. Thank you for serving our country.
Our prayers and sympathy go to the family. Gary was a great guy, friend, cousin. We wished we had stayed more in touch.
God bless you, Gary, and hold you close. May your family and friends be comforted in the knowledge and memories of your life here on earth. We will always miss you and your courageous and joyous personality.
Dallas, Dan and Fred...Our thoughts, love and prayers are with all of you today and in the days ahead. Gary left a legacy that will live on forever by all who knew and loved him. He touched our heart in ways that no one could...he lifted our spirits...comforted us in our times of sorrow...enlightened us with his sense of humor...and fought for the good of his country and fellowman. I will miss him every day and will cherish the memories we shared. For all the Gary's Facebook friends...."Jeeves...get Gary his dress uniform, his shined shoes and a glass of your finest wine...oh and don't forget his halo and angels wings...he has a meeting today with God and will want to look his very best!!!" Rest in peace Gary...God Bless! Terri (Cousin and little sis)
I can picture Gary, walking across the Rainbow Bridge and picking up Benny and Bandit, putting them under his arms and going toward Fiddler's Green to meet all the men from his page who he never let us forget.
I salute you Gary standing at the gates of Heaven, you will be there with a Band of Brothers. May the Lord Bless you and hold you in his arms. where you are now comforted, and Finally at Peace.
My deepest condolences to Gary's sons, Danny and Dallas, and his extended Family including his best friends in Life, Louis, Jack and Bill.
Gary was a exceptional Man, a Dear friend for many years. I was truly blessed to have known him and lucky to have spent many great times with him and our other friends. Gary always was very caring and Loving to everyone who walked in his path. He is and was a "True Honorable Veteran", and a Brother to many. He will be remembered by the thousands he helped over the past 17 years online and countless others. His passing has broken my heart. He will always be loved and missed.
Goodbye, My Dear friend!! I hope someday we meet again. Love, Sue / HaloSue

I knew Gary only through facebook and the game a lot of us played called War Commander.I guess I met him about 2 years ago but got to know him very well. We laughed a lot when he was on and he told us stories both good and bad but the one thing that stuck out with all the times we talked the he was the biggest advocate for veterans and their rights. He will be greatly missed by all.Love ya gary!!!!!!
