So Sorry to hear of Garry's passing. I have so many fond memories of us singing in the Choraliers at Gross School and singing with him in The Baker's Dozen group that Mrs. Baer put together in high school. Thanks for the memories, Garry. My sympathies to his family.

I grew up as a friend and classmate of Garry and remember him as someone who always made my day better. He will surely be missed by all who knew him.

I'm so sorry to hear about Garry's passing. I grew up just a few blocks from him and went to grammar school and high school with him. I remember him fondly as a truly person. He will be missed.
