I just found out last night and I'm so sorry. Even tho we didn't get to see each other very often, it was always fun to visit and tell stories about our family. I'm so glad you got to come to my "Kinsman wedding" during your trip home for your anniversary. Sad that it would be our last. He will always be looking down on us all smiling and laughing. God bless you all............Love ya...........Donna Gabehart (Sisk)

Sending love and peace to Maxine , Tim, Pat, Amy , and Matt. So many fond memories with all of you. Our traditional Turkey Bowls are times I still look upon with a smile. You are my second family and my heart breaks for this loss. Growing up with your family has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. Gary’s laugh will always resonate and remind me to laugh and look upon everything in life with a sense of humor and to laugh loud and often. Love, prayers and comfort sent to all of you. God’s got you all in his warm embrace.

My sincere sympathies to Gary’s family. I worked with Gary at Rockwell Automation early in my career. I learned a lot from Gary about patience and finding a bit of humor in every circumstance. He was always “Joe Cool”. He was an incredibly talented writer. Some coworkers were blessed to receive a touching poem, written by Gary, in honor of a special occasion. RIP Gary!

My heart is sad to hear the news of Gary’s passing. I’m glad that I had a few occasions to meet him and talk with him at baseball games and such. He was always so kind and thoughtful. My prayers will be with everyone in his family. I’m making a donation to the Ballard Food Bank here in his name. This organization does much to help those in need and I think Gary would support that.
