    Gary will be truly missed. It is very hard to lose a parent, family member, friend. Gary was a true friend of our entire family and all I can remember right now are the fun things that he would do when he came out to our house. Josh he would make my mom and dad mad, and then have them laughing until they cried. I will think about Gary often.

    Sorry to hear about Gary’s passing. I often think about the trips we took to Eminence and splashing in the Currant River. However, his favorite spot was Jack’s Fork and I’m sure he’s sitting there watching the water flow.
