    So sorry for your loss. May the words of Revelation 21:4 bring you comfort it says: “…death will be no more.., the former things have passed away.” Please visit for more on this hope

    So many good and fun memories over 30+ years of knowing Gary. His unique sense of humor never failed for some laughs. He was my “go to guy” for machining parts for my race car. I valued his opinion when It came time to making them. He would always either validate or improve upon them without question to the better. Over the past 8 months he machined several parts to convert the race car over to port fuel injection. The end result was perfection. Wish he had the chance to hear it run and take a ride. I will miss him. We a lost a brilliant, good hearted soul of a man too early. God Bless you and your family Gary.

    I remember Gary as a small child, babysat him and his brother Mathew, as my mother Pauline did. I’ll treasure the times with Gary and Matthew in Lowell. Sandi, I am so sorry for your loss. I will see you on Saturday for his services. Sandi (Jalbert) McGurrin.

    I shared many good times and conversations with Gary. He was a funny guy with a big heart. He helped me with more projects then I can remember. He seemed to always have the answer to the problem at hand. Whenever I needed a friend he would be there. The past year he was coming over often and it was enjoyable to have his company. I miss him and will continue to miss him. Rest in peace my friend.

    R.I.P. Gary. Make someone up there in Heaven laugh, OK?!
    Sandi & Matty I can’t imagine the loss that you are experiencing right now. My heart breaks for the two of you. You are both in my prayers. God needs you Gary. I will always miss your laughter. My heart is breaking right now.

    I knew Gary from the time he was a pre-teen to my last visit with he and his mother a few weeks ago. What I remember most is his intelligence, personality and his wry sense of humor. He could always make me laugh. He was dedicated to his Mother and Grandparents and always willing to help out whenever needed. Rest in the arms of the Lord, Gary.
