I had the pleasure of meeting Gary this summer when Mame brought him for a visit. What a friendly, honest and kind person. I wish I got to spend more time with him. It's obvious to see why so many people thought so highly of him. Everytime I see the hot dog truck in Greenville I will remember how much he loved their french fries. Rest well Gary. Thank you for the happiness you brought to my friend.

Worked with Gary at the G.E. Selkirk plant until he took a position in Pittsfield. Had a lot of good times. I was saddened to hear he passed. My condolences to his family.

I am so sorry to hear of Gary's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. I remember all the good times we all had hanging out at the Ravena Lanes in the past. Gary always had a joke to tell and a smile on his face. May he RIP

The Hall and Williams families made many lifelong memories w/Gary. We met him 51 years ago through G.E. Selkirk and our mixed bowling league @Southend Lanes in Albany and continued to enjoy his company particulary on another mixed league in Ravena. The best memories of all were when he and the love of his life, Cathie Persico became Godparents to our grandson Paris. We'll always feel blessed for all the good years when we traveled together, had dinners together, and were there for each other during times of crisis. R.I.P. old friend!!
