So many great memories of being neighbors of /Gerry and his family. Prayers to all.
Sorry to hear the news. Prayers for the family. Enjoyed Garry as a 1964 Class mate & friend. Numerous memories & conversations over the years.
We are so very sorry for your loss. Mark and I have fond memories of Garry from high school and always loved catching up with him at our class reunions. Our sincere sympathies go to Margaret and family.
Garry and his family lived just down the street from us when I was in high school, and I never knew anything but friendliness and kindness from him. When Jeanne Laird Mason and I were just learning our way around Carbondale before freshman classes started at Sourhern Illinois University in 1965, here came Garry and his roommate, on their mopeds, to welcome us and take us out to dinner and a movie our first Saturday night in town. My husband, Gary, and I enjoyed a fun evening and long conversation with Garry and Margaret at the FTHS Class of 1965’s 50th reunion three years ago. Sending heartfelt condolences to Margaret, Dennis and your families—so deeply sorry for your great loss.
Our sympathy to Margaret and family. I remember Garry as being a kind and considerate classmate.
Thoughts and prayers for you and the family.
Many blessings to you, Margaret and family. We always enjoyed catching up with the two of you. Garry was a good man who will be sorely missed
So very sorry to hear about Gary. No words can ease your loss except prayer.
