I was so sorry to hear of Garys sudden passing. I met Gary and Jackie just a few weeks back while visiting Ohio with my boyfriend Nick. Who was a friend of Garys. He was very nice and welcoming me as a visitor to his home. He was in the middle of building a “garage” for Jackies favorite car. My deepest sympathy to you Jackie and entire family and I was honored to get to meet him. Take care!

Peace on Earth and Good Will To Men is what comes to mind. I’ll see ya on the other side so keep a fire burning and a chair open~!

I’m so sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. Words can’t express the gratitude I will always have for Gary watching out for my Mom after my Dad died in 2001. Even after Mom went to a nursing home, Gary always kept an eye on her property. When Ryan moved into the house, he and Gary became good friends and Gary continued to be a great neighbor. I’ll never forget Gary riding his Harley in our last fireworks show. Gary would always offer me “one” whenever I was down at the house. My wife and I always got a kick out of hearing Gary’s boisterous voice from our home on Superior street. It won’t be the same looking down at Gary’s garage and not seeing the door up with Gary and his friends with all the bikes parked in front. May God be with you all during your time of grieving.

My thoughts and prayers go out to my Uncle Gary and Aunt Marie, and to my cousins Markie, Tracy and Jill….I can still remember the many times we stayed at Grandma Chloes and we played cowboy and Indian’s with Lil Gary and Mark….some of my best childhood memories were with them. I am so so sorry, he was so much fun to grow up with. Thinking of all of you…..

We never had the chance to meet you Gary, but you made my sister Jackie a very happy camper! Our heart aches for her loss and for all the rest of the family. Although you are gone from this place on earth – you will forever be in the hearts and memories of those that have surrounded you over the years. Your laughter and sense of humor will be missed, but never forgotten. Our prayers to you all.

David and Dawn Dudleson - Oct 22, 2013

We are so sorry for the loss of Gary, he was a great person. He always treated us so kindly and was very respectful. Always would he say when we were around, “Dave you remember when you threw that rock at me?” Then they would laugh. Gary always would have everyone laughing and having a good time. He really knew what family and friends were about and he will be missed deeply by more people than you or I will ever know. He was a very special person to a lot of us and we will miss him. But, Remember he will always be with you and that he loved you dearly.

I never thought when I went to the funeral of Little Fletch on that snowy day that this would happen. I won’t forget how when I broke my ankle how you pushed me in the wheelchair. You always did what I asked. I will miss seeing you at the Shiloh Diner or grocery store or to just stop by Oney Machine to say hello. We will miss you so much but you can be with your son. RIP Big Fletch
