    We have known Gary for five years and have become great friends and neighbors. We will miss him dearly. He always had a smile and was great at telling us stories about his childhood in Phoenix. Life in our neighborhood won’t be the same without him.

    Great man, truly missed

    I am certainly going to miss Gary’s sweet smile and gentle manner. He was always such fun to be with and there was no end to his jokes and witty comments.
    Charlie, my heart goes out to you at this time and my prayer is that you will receive the peace Jesus offered us.

  6. Denise Planeta says:

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I am praying for comfort and peace for my dear Aunt Charlene and cousin Kelly and his family and for my cousin Jake.
    Uncle Gary ALWAYS made me smile. I absolutely adored his sense of humor! That ‘tough guy’ exterior never fooled me………..I ALWAYS knew the sweet man that was inside. He will forever remain in my heart and memories. GOD BLESS!

    We met Gary in the Villages. A gentle-man who always had a joke of some kind up his sleeve. He made others feel good about life , and comfortable, when you were around him: this is a great gift from a human being to mankind. To Charlie and the entire family: thanks for sharing him with us and bringing much joy to our lives.

  10. Terry and Jerri Malone says:
