Gary was a great friend and loved the Lord with such joy. He served in so many capacities as a teacher, evangelist, friend. He was always ready to help in any way.

My sympathy to all who knew and loved Gary, esp. his family. He lived three doors from my husband and I and teased that, since we could see the lights in his living room, we knew everything he did. A "steady Eddie" kind of friend - always available if you had a need, sometimes recognizing a need before you did. His loving oven fed many and he could always be counted on to host gatherings for his neighbors at holidays. He could always be counted on to produce one's favorite pie or cake on one's birthday. I was pleased to be trusted with walking Gabe on occasion and looking in on him when Gary was away. I shall miss him in so many ways, but know he is where he wanted to be.

We attended the same church for many years in Indiana Pa. During one period we had experienced some times of financial problems. I am almost positive it was Gary who slipped a $20 bill into my coat pocket while it hung in the church lobby. He was very kind and caring to many. Rejoicing that he is with his Lord but will miss him here below.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My deepest sympathy to the family as Gary was a good friend and was an amazing man and friend to me. We served in the choir, the men's prayer group and Bible study together. His words of wisdom imparted to me will long be remembered. He contributed a lot to my life in the short time I got to know him and it was my pleasure whenever he was around. He will be missed, however I do know in our conversations that his faith was strong as he told me he would be ok if he met Jesus before me. What a strong statement of faith as he is now with his best friend, Jesus.

Gary was such a fun person. As a Chautauqua volunteer he could be depended upon to sign up for everything he could possibly do. I loved the story that when he moved to Greenville he signed up to be an Uber driver just to learn his way around his new residence. He chauffeured almost every Chautauqua performer in the last few years and he took such good care of them with great flair and care. Onward and upward good friend.
