  1. Gary and Gail were the first people we met when we came to Hornell and we became fast friends. We spent so many joyful hours together. Gary had a wonderful sense of humor and could always make us laugh. He adored his wife and family as they did him. He will be greatly missed. Jim and I were proud to call him our friend.

  2. So sorry to hear of Gary and Marc’s passing, my thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.

  3. Mandy,
    I know that you cared deeply for your father, Gary. You gave much back to you Dad as you always do. Bless you!

  4. Dear Gail and family,
    We are so very sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. Just a few weeks ago we were driving down Big Creek and passed your road wondering how you were. We at one time were good friends.. We lived next to you in Goodwin’s Trailer Park. We had such good times. We even went with you one weekend and stayed with your parents. Such dear people. You now have a beautiful family.
    We will never forget Gary’s wit. If someone could make me laugh, it was him.
    We will always cherish our friendship with you and the memories.


  5. Gail,
    I’m so sorry to read that Gary passed away. Remember we worked together for Bob Evans. Doug and I have often thought about you and your family over the years. May your memories help ease the pain you’re feeling.
