    My sympathies goes out to Gary’s family. A very heartfelt loss. I was Gary’s barber and always looked forward to his monthly shave and the great conversation. He will be missed dearly.

    Sorry to hear a great guy has moved to heaven. I know he is there as he was one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. I worked with him at Omnicare. He was sweetest guy even when work was hard. Everyone who has had the pleasure to meet him will miss him.

    So sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. I worked with Gary as he interned at Wally’s Claremont Pharmacy back when. He was one of the best older friends I had, especially when he let me drive that purple Charger. My condolences to Patty and the family.
