TS Bank is saddened to learn of Gary's passing. He was such a good man and will be missed by many. Our prayers are with you during this time of loss. Gary served on an community advisory board and shared much wisdom with us.

I was very saddened to learn that Gary had passed away. Gary was a true life long friend. We started first grade at Fairview and continued our education at Alta High School as freshmen.

I will always remember the great time's that our group of close classmates had being together during our high school years and our summers during college.

I knew Gary's parents very well and I always enjoyed playing at Gary's home shooting our BB guns and goofing around.

Thanks for your Military Service to Our Country.
Past Commander V.F.W.

I was so sorry to hear the sad news of Gary's passing. I know everything was done for him that could be done, and how wonderful that he had you! I will cherish my memories of him, especially the most recent ones from our 50th reunion. What a great guy!
I can only imagine how emotionally and physically exhausted you must be and hope that soon you'll be able to get some rest and take care of yourself.
"May love bring you comfort and time bring you...
