My deepest sympathy to you Jane and your family.
Gary was one of the best guys I ever worked with. We worked together at the Advance for about 10 years. He was someone I looked up to because I saw how good of a husband and father he was. We always loved to talk about hunting and fishing.
Please know that you are in our prayers!

Our family knew Gary from his working on our muck farm in Moline. He would ride with my brother from Cutlerville to the country. I recall he was a good worker and nice kid. Later he went to SCHS with us and was in my sister Jan's class. My sympathy to your family.

I haveI have very pleasant memories of pleasant hunting in South Dakota with Gary. He was a very gentle man. Our sympathies to dear Jane and her family.

My sympathy to the family of Gary. He was my supervisor years ago when I worked at Advance Newspapers, and I have good memories of him. He was always fair, conscientious, wise and considerate; simply a pleasant man to know. May the Lord be with you in your loss and give you His peace.
