Preceding in death were his parents.

Gary and I were in high school at Elston High School in Michigan City, In. He always had a good attitude and could make me smile. After we were out of school we ran into each other at LaPorte Hospital. We had a good talk. I am so sorry that he is gone. My sympathy to Karen and family.

Gary and I were classmates at Elston High School in Michigan City. He always had a smile and could make me smile. After I was out in the world and working I ran into Gary & Karen at LaPorte Hospital. We talked and talked. They were fostering kids if I remember correctly. He was a great person. Sorry for your loss Karen and family
