Not sure what to say?

I was so sorry to hear of Gary's passing. His smile lit up Millikan High School-whether cheerleading or just walking down the hall-our class of '68 was the better because he was there.

My deepest sympathy,
Cheryl Daniel Partridge

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow. May your fond memories bring you comfort. Gary inspired us so much as a Cheerleader, leading us all in happy times of fun and laughter.

Nancy Ludlam contacted me thru my blog re Gary, but didntt mention his paassing. I felt something sad might be haappened, so my huusband and I looked it up. We are so saddened. We knew Gary thru Flight Safety, Long Beach. What a great guy with great humor. I dug up a picture takeen about 5-6 yrs ago at a Quiet Bird function at Long Beach Airport. Me, Gary, Lindsay Gow and Hugh Gilbert are in it. That was the last I saw Gary. Glad I have the picture. Rest in peace brother.

Jeff and I remember good times with Gary--especially flying with him to a USC/Stanford game. He was a great guy. We offer our sincere condolences to the family and keep them in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Jeff and Gwynne Anderson

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Gary's passing. Gary was a friend and fellow gymnast when we attended Millikan H.S. I always admired Gary's passion for all things aeronautical.
