The staff at kismet consignment will definitely miss Gary's smiling face and gentle demeanor.

Rick Oldfield on Dec 8, 2017

I remember when Gary was in basic training in the Coast Guard in Cape May New Jersey. He came home on an emergency leave to see Connie. He missed his flight going back and he was going to be a wall. So we got in my car and we drove to Cape May New Jersey Made It by 1 hour I turned around and drove home I think it was 23 hours straight good times good memories. Gary and I grew up together. My deepest sympathy to the family Rick Oldfield

I remember Gary as a man with a smile that enjoyed life. I pray you find peace as you recall all the good memories of Gary's time on earth. He will be missed. Sorry for your lost.
