Gary will be deeply missed by those who got to work with him and those who got to be his friend. I wish I could have spent more time with Gary and see more of his bright personality during his time at sola. He knew how to light up a room with a joke and his big smile. When he wanted to make you laugh he would persist until he got you to crack and when he asked you how you were doing you got the feeling that he truly cared to know. As a team I know we cared for Gary a lot, often to the point of bugging him about but that’s ok because that’s what you do when you want the best for someone. Gary thank you for being you and giving us positive memories to remember you by.
Gary was a very funny and a legitimate prankster always looking to pull one over on ya .He will be greatly missed by all and I’m sure is rejoicing with his heaven family now. RIP Gary .
I am very sorry Paulette. I remember Gary as a young boy. He was always doing something funny or telling a joke. He had a wonderful smile also and a great laugh! May God give you peace in the coming days.
