Gary was a good friend and coworker who I enjoyed working with before I retired from the USPS. Always willing to help when asked to do so and was a hard worker. May he rest in peace and I know he will be missed by anyone who associated with him.

I worked with Gary for too many years to mention but during that timeframe, I never saw him without a big smile and offering an even bigger hug. Gary was a true light on the campus. I miss him already but I know that he's with the Lord.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I'm praying for your peace and comfort.

Gary was one of my heroes at work. Whenever something in my project did not trigger the update, Gary was the first to investigate what happened and fix it! It is priceless to have someone like to Gary to jump in and make it work. I was so happy to finally meet Gary in person last year. It was like old friends. His memory will be with me and I will miss him.

My heart and prayers go out to Gary's family.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Gary. He was such a true gentleman who loved his family, laughing, and expressing his unmovable opinions and faith. He loved beauty in the simple things that he would capture on photo and share with us sometimes in poster size in the office. He was so proud to show the new photo accessory that he would receive like a child receives a gift at Christmas. I will miss his smile greatly around the office. My condolence to his wife, children and his dear grandchildren. You are in my prayers.

Very sorry to hear about the passing of Gary. We have known each other since grade school. It was nice to see him again at our 50th reunion. The pictures he took at the reunion gave all of us a lasting memory of the event. I will remember him as a person who was always willing to help. More than once he came over to my house to tutor me in German. That was Gary. You could count on him. Our sympathy and prayers go out to his family. Rest in peace.

Gary used to teach my daughter, Jessica, at the church. I attended his Photo Club to learn and hear some tips to help me be better at taking photo. I saw him almost everyday at work walking by in the building. He had these heart attacks a couple times and came out stronger. Who would have thought he would have lost this time! I used his story to share with my kids to not take their days for grant. You see people one day and another day they just disappear from your life forever. Be kind to others and help out while you can were probably something Gary showing kids examples at the church. RIP!

We just knew each other by sight, but I would see Gary on the elevator or in the halls during the day at work and we would tease each other because I was from Michigan and he from Ohio. I will cherish and miss those times.

I am so sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
