Not sure what to say?

Gary's kind spirit and easy laugh will be greatly missed. His friendship and words of encouragement will always be with me.

Gary was a wonderful friend - I have many great memories from our high school days. My prayers are with family and friends during this sad time.

Rest in peace dear Gary. You will always be remembered.

I have fond memories of you growing up in Longview. Will miss you.

Your cousin,


Gary was a good friend to me in years passed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

A man's man; courage in life and courage in the face of death.
I toast your life and mourn your death - Rest in Peace.
