Not sure what to say?

I missed the speical occasion in celebrating your New Life Gary. You know you will always have a special place in my heart. I love you and boy do I miss your laugh.

I knew Gary as a broadcaster with KVMR. He had great taste in music. I loved calling him up at the show and talking about his song selections and once a year I would visit with him at the National Poetry Gathering in Elko. Although I knew he had not been well in recent years, I thought I saw him, for just a second, at the Gathering this year. My heart had jumped before I realized that it wasn't him. He has on my mind since that day. He was a good man and he will be missed.

- A genuine man left love ones behind - These men are rare to find - He truly was one of a kind -
It was wonderful knowing Gary. This man touched my heart and made me laugh. I thank God for the time I had with him. The last night I was with him he expressed his love for family through prayer.
He knew he was leaving earth and going to a place of eternal. He thanked God for having you in his life. He asked that you be at peace and be blessed as he was.
Condolences to...

Gary was a good friend and mentor. He truly enjoyed his life and his career with CTA. I still treasure the CDs of Native American songs that he shared with me.
Rest in peace, my friend.

Gary was a real Union guy. He gave me my start in CTA and I am grateful for his leadership and continuing activism over the years. He inspired many, including me, to be true union advocates.

Good-bye, Cousin Gary. I will remember you and Judy as you were, lovely, young, happy, and newly married--holding hands as you sat on the covered swing in our back yard in Fresno. Marian

I enjoyed working with Gary. We had some great conversations about politics and organizing CTA as an organization and organizing individuals.
He was supportive of the people who worked with him .and ready for new challenges.
God speed my fiend!

I will always be grateful to Gary for giving me the privilege and honor joining CTA staff.

I worked with and for Gary in CTA, and we stayed in touch via email. I will miss him.
