Our thoughts are with the family of Gary ! I just found out you passed away ! You were like my little brother ! We had so many good times ! In the last few years I was reconnected to you and Sister Patty ! I was glad you could meet my husband ! Yes my family you got to see again ! We had some great laughs ! Your wit and sense of humor was contagious ! I will miss you more now we were going to keep Patty’s memory alive ! Now I have to keep you both treasured in my heart ! Love you Rest In Peace !

Cherish many memories of Gary from our highschool days. My favorite is when he got a flat tire taking me gome from a school dance. I remember him so scared of the trouble he was going to be in with my parent for bringing me home late ... he wasn't. My parents loved him! Everyone did! He will be greatly missed by many. ❤

I am very sad to hear of Gary's passing. Gary and I worked together for years at United, I retired in 2017. My memories of Gary are with a smile on his face. Coworkers used to rave about his cooking. No doubt he'll be missed. -Jil Ross

worked with Gary at Ohare terminal 2 before retirement. He had so much personality. RIP

I will always remember Gary as a happy and upbeat person. He was always laughing and having a good time. I will miss his laugh,sad that he left us too soon.

I've been friends with Gary since fourth grade.He always knew how to put a smile on your face.He made our high school years fun, especially prom.Wish I could find the pictures of that night.He will be missed..Gone way to soon.

My condolences to the family. Gary was a polite, sweet & generous guy. When he would come to visit Patricia he would usually throw at least one BBQ of epic proportions. Now he & Patricia are hosting epic BBQ's in Heaven. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Generosity and Hospitality, the first thoughts that came to mind when I got word of Garys passing. Gary would have us over for many bbqs and we would work on projects and tinker with vehicles and have a couple cocktails as we enjoyed the fellowship. When Patty would come to visit They would come to visit me at my restaurant and I would do me best to show her that we could make an old fashioned in Chicago just as good as the neighbors to the north. I could never imagine that are last time...
