  1. Gary was always the funniest, and outgoing person that I had the pleasure of being around. Whether it was fishing, work, or amongst a crowd. It has been twenty eight years since I seen him last and we always parted with laughter. Gary always put a smile on my face even when I didn’t think I could have one.

  2. I knew Gary from high school. We had a few beers together over the years. I remember taking our boys to watch the fireworks in North Baltimore. Jeremy, Jason & my son, Josh (Davis). He said we sounded like the Walton’s. Or something popular back then. Deb Zoll was there also. I think the last I saw him was nine years ago. Memories….. it saddens me to see he has moved on. The family has my Sympathy. He was ornery, we laughed alot.
