Gary was a loving and dedicated father and did an amazing job raising his daughter. He loved every minute he could spend with his her, never missing any high school activity or function she was involved in. He was there for her through it all.

I met Gary when he worked with my husband Jeff at the State Dept. of Health. It was wonderful to see the love and dedication he had for his daughter Lindsey. May you find comfort in his being at peace. Our condolences to his family and friends.
