  3. RIP Gary you will be missed very much by your extended family at UPS ,my condolences to the Montgomery family !!

  4. SO sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you . May you feel the love that Gary had for his family.

  5. Our hearts are hurting so bad about your death. We loved you so much. I am thankful you are out of pain and discomfort and not suffering anymore. You are in a glorious place called heaven. Although, in our adult years we didn\’t see each other much, except at funerals or reunions, I loved every time we could be together. I remember our childhood and how close we all were and all the fun we had when we got together. We loved going to Bulls Run and having bon fires and marshmallow fights in the back of George Fuells truck on the way home. We had sticky marshmallows all over us, even your mom. She & Ruth Cook were our playful adult supervision in the back of the truck with us, giggling all the way. Can you believe we rode in the back of a truck then! I think there were 12 of us back there. Christmases, Easter & other times we were at granny Gordon\’s house, was such a joy . We enjoyed our childhood growing up with our close cousins. I remember the Easter baskets you, Danny & Ronnie got. They were huge! I was so envious. I remember you and Jerry being the youngest at the time & how cute you guys were. A few years ago when Nora got us all together again was such a blessing. It shocked me when you wanted your picture with your girl cousins. That blessed my heart. I need to print that picture for all us girls. It\’s a pleasant memory I have of you that day. I will miss you so much. It will never be the same without you. One day I will join you in heaven and we will rejoice with all those gone before us. I love you!

  6. Gary was loved as a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend and all our lives have been blessed that he was a part of our lives. He will be dearly missed by all. With all our love, Bill, Nancy and family.

  7. I learned today of Gary’s passing. I am very sorry. He was always such a joy to be around. He and I would joke that he, my brother Tim and I were brothers as we were all tall and skinny with long blond hair (OK, he and Tim had the blond hair-mine more brown) plus he had the only sports coat between the three of us and it fit perfectly! I wouldn’t trade those days at EKU and 703 for the world. Susan, my heart goes out to you and your family. I wish I could hug you right now as you always said a hug is a wonderful thing and you were right. Love, Jm (aka JimBob)
