Dad. What can I say? He was an Army National Guardsman, as well as serving in the US Navy on the USS Guadalcanal. He was a retired police officer of several precincts. He was a true “cowboy” who loved the west! Rest In Peace Dad, until we meet again

My condolences to the family. Gary will be missed by all of us
We hung out together in Junior High and I can remember going to his father's shop which was close to the High School

Gary will be missed.  He gave service to our country and his community.  I encouraged him to come to our reunions.  In our busy day to day we often do not take time to keep in touch with both friends and family.  GOD Bless you all.
