Growing up in Latonia, Bernie and Gary were the best of friends. Bernie nicknamed Gary, Scrap, when the two were young wrestlers because he was so scrappy. The nickname stuck. We are very saddened to hear of Gary's passing but are finding comfort in the many fond memories we shared with him. Please accept our heartfelt condolences during this difficult time. Rest in Peace Gary. You will be missed.
