  1. I remember Gary when I first attended the Lake View Baptist in 1980. He had a great sense of humor and fun person to be around. I took Gary to a St. Louis Cardinals game in St. Louis, Mo back in the 1980's it was a fun trip. He also was good at karate, and liked to practice a lot at home.These are some of the memories that I remember about him. I am sorry to hear about his death how shocking it was to me. I trust that Gary is in heaven with the Lord and all his discomforts are now gone. May his family members look unto the lord today for comfort and strength in this time of sadness.

    God Bless,
    Dennis Brown
