  1. CandleImageHey Dad, You are with me everyday, thru everything I do and am is from you. Talk to you later when Im working on the 41Plymouth. Oh and I married Lori, my first love.
    Love your first son, Gary Patrick Jr.

  2. We were devastated when we learned of your death. It’s been over a year now, and we still think of you and speak of you often. You and Janet played such an important part in our lives, and some of your jokes and sayings are now a part of our family legacy. The many card nights, dinners, and fun times formed memories for our whole family. Our kids remember thinking we were the craziest and most fun people they knew. Do you remember the time they just sat there watching us instead of the TV because we were more fun to watch? We’ll meet again one day, and good times will roll … Ken and Jan

    • Ken, I too remember watching you guys play cards.
