Tim & Joyce Schindler of Newport, OR January 21, 2018 We would like to share how Gary touched our lives for so many years. First of all he is a great friend of the family that would be there wanting to help in anyway he can. He was also a great businessman, with all of his knowledge he didn’t hesitate to step up and help us start our own business which we are grateful for. But most of all we will always remember Gary as one of the family. He is the one that would always make you laugh with his quick responses along with his imagination and adding his animation Gary would almost always leave you in tears. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. Tim & Joyce Schindler

Lori & Chuck Amato of Happy Valley, Or January 23, 2018 Chuck and I would like to offer our condolences. We had every intention I was being at Gary's service to celebrate his life when I ended up sick... I thought the world of Gary and think that of you Janet. I have very fond memories of taking guitar lessons with Gary when I was a teenager, a long time ago. My prayer today for you and your family is that God keeps His arms wrapped around you and your family in your hour of need. God bless you all
