We lost Gary just last summer. Gary was one of my best friends starting in the 6th grade at Madison #1.

It is really sad to have lost him so early, and I think about him often. he helped me learn how to play guitar, and as life went on he became one of my better friends when I finally returned to Phoenix permanently in 2001.

He is survived by his wife RoseAnn whom I also met in the 6th grade. They were together for so long it boggles the mind.

I am sure Gary has a lot of friends out there who miss him as much as I do.

  Like Paul I met Gary when I was in grade school. He was one of those gifted guys who could pick up most musical instruments and just play it.  I have fun memories of Gary. I remember our junior year he wanted to take me to this cool town (Laguna Beach) in southern California to camp on the beach.  He continued to enjoy this place for years to come with his family.

We worked together at the celebrity theater that same year .After high school and by surprised we both had taken an ethics class taught by Dr.Sullivan at Phoenix college. I watched him get married; I remembered he woke me up on a Sunday morning to share his joy that he and Roseann were expecting their first child. After marriage and children we had a different role and did not see each other as often as we once did. He was a pretty laid back guy and he loved to tell a story and end it with a hearty laugh.  I can still hear it.

 In 2007 we both battled the big C. At a party I had we joked, laugh and perhaps inside cried a little about the chemo we both endured. The last time I saw Gary he was playing in a band playing his favorite Beatle songs with one of his sons (Now how Cool Would that be?). I talked to him during break that evening and he made commit to me that some guys like playing golf but he loved playing music. That was his way of having fun. I will miss this Zany friend.
