Not sure what to say?

What a terrific guy. He will be missed by all but left a lot of great memories.

So sorry to hear of Gary's passing. He was a great guy. I always enjoyed my time with him at our SLAG meetings. My sympathy to his friends and family. Ernie Coe

Dianne...we just heard...hang in there....John and Lorraine

I thought of Gary as more than an agent, but a friend. He went out of his way to help whenever he was asked. When my wife and I adopted our daughter, she was sick and needed to go to the hospital immediately. Gary made sure she was enrolled in the health insurance so that there were no issues at the hospital. He was a fine man and I am fortunate to have known him. My deepest condolences to all his family, he will be missed.

Met Gary at the MAC on the tennis courts. His group and our group would then head over to the bar at Casa Gallardo to share tall stories. Gary and his son, Drew, began taking care of our health insurance needs after that.

53 years seems like a long time that you were married to Gary. When I heard from Bob that Gary died, memories of you two as newlyweds in Beau Jardin put a smile on my face. The two of you were about to become parents for the first time and none of us knew what to do when you went into labor after a barbecue at your place because Bob was the one getting sick so our attention was on him first. But cool and calm Gary said I am sure your labor was a false alarm and we left to take care of Bob....

Mrs. Stitz and Family, Please except my sincere condolences at the loss of Mr. Stitz! Always enjoyed seeing and talking with him at the club!!

Very sorry to hear of Gary's passing, he was a great guy and a fine friend. We played several close golf matches at Westborough and I think he won them all in extra holes. You have my deepest sympathy on your loss. Spence Wolling, now age 96, still golfing, for fun only.

Diane and family, we were so sad to hear about Gary. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Paul & Liz St. Cin
