Gary was not only a drinking buddy but also a good friend who liked having a party and enjoying himself. He could work with rope and do Navy knots, something I had a problem with, but he always lent a hand doing the hard jobs.
If you ever needed to have somebody watch your back - Gary was there. You are most surely missed not only by myself but with your other friends too who still remember you.
From a close friend,
