I worked with Gary at the Sheriff's office. I had a lot of respect for him. Always quiet but always made me laugh. A great guy taken way too early! Go rest high on the Mountain my friend.

I went to grade school and high school with Gary, and remember him from years ago as a pleasant, reserved. nice looking young man. I recall his being on the CCHS basketball team during those years when basketball was a very big deal, and team spirit was through the roof. Condolences to his wife, children and extended family during this sad time.
