He was a retired sales representative with Pitney Bowes having 35+ years of service and was a part time courier with Green Couriers.

He was a 1964 graduate of Holy Cross High School, an avid car enthusiast (known to always be on the lookout for his next) and a past member of the Covington Moose Lodge #1496.

Gary, I’m going to miss seeing you outside our condos with Molly. We had fun watching our dogs chase each other and acting crazy. You always were so sweet to Cooper, Jenna, and I. It was such a comforting feeling knowing you were there for us to help with anything that came up and looking out for us. I’m going to miss seeing you. You, Jackie, and Molly have been such a sweet addition to my life for the past 3 years. Im thankful that I was blessed to have a friend and neighbor like you. Rest in peace, my friend.

Gary and I grew up together. We were always into cars and doing crazing things with our bicycles. Gary taught me to sit on the handle bars and ride it that way. The list of great things we did would fill a book. He had so many friends and I never heard a harsh remark about anyone. Gary you left us to early but our memories will last a lifetime with me. Jackie and Chris I send my deepest sympathies and condolences.
