    May God be with you all at this time and always. Gary was definitely a one of a kind. His funny sense of humor was top notch. A lot of times it got him in trouble, but that just made him more of a shiester. I always laughed when I was in his presence. And that’s how I’ll remember him, cracking a joke and his infectious smile. Rest In Peace, Gar. Make sure you’re up there stirring up trouble with my Grandpa Hank. Love ya.

    We knew Gary, his mom, dad, and brother and sister when they lived on Hamline Ave in St Paul. Mona and I, along with our two daughters enjoyed many holidays back then with Gary and his family and share many very fond memories. Gary was a fine young man and we are saddened to hear of his death at such an early age. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gary and his family this day.

    I would have liked to met you all but I never met most of you. Why? He had many gifts in addition to his brilliant mathematical mind for carpentry. He was able to get my disabled son to feed himself and thrive, made our house a home, made me feel like I might be pretty, made me able to try to sing, Loved his family and friends and would never stop talking about any of you
    ever. Wished I’d have met him sooner. Glad to care for him the 5 years I could and be with him his last days of his life. Would still be by his side.

    Sorry I did not get to meet a lot of my best friends friends. He did talk about you all often in the 5 years I was with me. He loved you severely. Gary brought liveliness whomever he was with. He was able to make me sing again and even made me feel beautiful. He got my disabled son to thrive and our house to be a home. Glad I could be there for him his last five years and every moment in the hospital of his last days.

    I just found out about Gary today. I am so sorry for your loss! I can’t believe it. He was my best friend in High School at Ramsey in Roseville. We always had a blast and did keep in touch after school. My sincere condolences to family and friends. Hi to Joe and the old man if you remember me. I went by Willie and the old man always gave me shit for long hair! I miss that. Take care.
