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.

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.
