Been knowing Gary for over 55 years. Worked for him. Worked with him. Went through locomotive engineer training in Little Rock with him. Roomed with him on 3 different occasions. Enjoyed many many good times with him. Shared sad times with him. To say I will miss him is an understatement. The peace of the Lord be with his family and may Perpetual light shine upon him.
