I am so sorry to hear about Gary's passing. Although I know he is healthy and in the Lord's house, my prayers are for his family at this time. God bless. Sincerely, Lisa Porter Novotny, Classmate.
I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Gary from SPHS and kept in touch with him thru FB. I did not know he had passed until tonight. I am very sorry I didn't know before now. I just shared the information with our class mates. May God bless you and the family.
Gary was a wonderful pastor. When he was in Kent, OH at Faith Family Fellowship he was always able to put the Word into everyday application. He also baptized my husband and I. My thoughts and prayers are with Barb and family during this time but I know God will bring all of you comfort. We were so blessed to know this man and his family. Love and prayers from the Ruble family, Kent, OH.
I am so saddened to hear of his passing. Gary was an amazing actor, an engaging intellectual, and a true gentleman. He was an asset to the Xenia Area Community Theater and will be forever missed. May peace & comfort surround his lovely wife Barb and their children.
I was only acquainted with Barb and Gary at KCC. However, even then one could sense the presence of the Lord in Gary's life. My prayers for Barb and those still remaining, at their great loss. I rejoice with the angels at his forwarding address. In His Love, Jody (Tolbert) Holbert class of '79 KCC.
I am so grateful to have met my cousin Gary and his wife Barb. My prayers are with the family. One thing is for sure, Heaven has gained a wonderful Angel.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family,from our family.
Uncle Gary was a great man, friend and pastor. Love you Superman!
Barb & Family: I'm so sorry for you all on the passing of Gary. Now he and my dad are together once again. I will be eternally grateful for all that Gary did for Dad before his passing and for the beautiful service he must have worked on so hard at his funeral. I can only hope someone will do such an excellent job on Gary's behalf at his celebration of life service on Monday. He was indeed a unique individual and a wonderful pastor. Someday maybe we'll understand why God chose to take him so early in his life - he was doing such wonderful work for God here on Earth. But for now, all we know is God called him home for a higher purpose. He will definitely be missed. May you find some comfort knowing he is now at peace with Jesus and God and no longer in such pain. And as he ended his service for my Dad two years ago, "WOW" for all he accomplished in his time here on Earth.
Uncle Gary will always hold a special place in my heart. He will be missed so much.
Our thoughts are with you all in this very difficult time. Praying for continued peace and comfort.
He has graduated from this phase of life most honorably.
We are sorry we never got to meet you. We heard so much about you from your loving daughterf Ruth and Glen her fiancee. Your legacy lives on through your family and everyone whose lives you touched.
Barb & family. I was sorry to hear about Gary's passing. Although I haven't kept in touch over the years, I remember him fondly from KCC. May God grant you the peace that passes all understanding.
