Mrs. Cary and family. I extend sincere sympathy from the Polk family in Woodstown. Mr. Cary changed Woodstown High School as no one else could. Everyone in our family has memories of him that brought so much good into our lives; from piano lessons and recitals to his encouragement during fundraising for the Gospel Choir to teaching the boys to be men and girls to be ladies. May you find comfort in the life he lived and the lives he changed. We send you our prayers and love.

It saddened my heart to hear of Mr Cary's passing. He was a great man and most importantly a man of God. I can remember him being my music teacher in elementary school, but most of my memories of him come from The Woodstown High School Gospel Chorus. Mr. Cary was such an example to many of the students he taught in that class and he touched so many lives. My prayers and condolences go out to his family. Remember that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. God Bless all of you.

To Ms. Colleen and Family,

I am very sorry for your loss. Know that Mr. Cary was a great man with a wonderful gift that he shared with many. I was blessed to know him through the Gloucester County Children's Chorus as a former board member. May God keep you in His care.

More than a Music Teacher - Mr. Cary taught me that it is not only ok to live your faith out in your life - but something you should do. He taught me my Christianity comes before my vocation.
I can still vividly recall how he would make us sing a solo in class - no matter how well or poor we thought we could sing.
