    There are not enough words to describe Gary...Courageous is the first one that comes to mind..Anyone who knew him knows all the things he overcame from the time he was 12 and nobody expected him to live, or ever walk again, to his mining accident where most didn't expect him to live or ever walk again...He spent a lifetime amazing everyone around him...He was also a great Father, Husband, brother, in law, etc...You name it and he was good at it...A wonderful person who will forever be missed by all of us!!
