I was greatly saddened to hear of the death of Gary (Moose). He was a good friend all through high school and afterward. He will always be "Moose", who played on my left side, as left tackle. He was a good football player and I will treasure the memories of our football years. Even though I have not seen him for several years, he will be missed. My wife and I send our prayers in support of his family.
Mary, we are so sorry to hear of your loss. May God comfort you in your sorrow.
So very sorry, for you Mary and family.
I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers and God bless your family.
We were so sorry to hear that Gary suddenly passed away. So many of us in Vandalia knew and liked Gary so much, and came to be a ture friend in the three years that he spent in Vandalia Illinois. We pray for the repose of his soul, and for the comfort of Our heavenly Father for those who are left behind, especially Gary's Mom.
Very sorry for your loss.
Gary was a classmate in grade school and high school.All those years we rode the school bus together Moose never seemed a just nickname for Gary to me. He was a gentle giant of a guy. He always knew you and will be missed by all who knew him.So sorry for your family's loss .
I have not seen Moose in many years, but I always considered him a friend. He was a gentle giant even as a young man. I tried to play football our freshman year. There was a drill where two players had to compete to get a loose ball, like a fumble. As luck would have it, I got Moose as my competition. He was just quite a bit larger than me. After he squashed me getting the ball, he immediately asked if I was okay and told me he tried not to hurt me. The world is a lesser place without Moose in it.
