“I was very sad to hear of Gary's passing. I got to know him over the last couple of years while he was dating my sister-in-law Florida (Fluff) Mahoney. I will always have fond memories of sitting with him in my backyard talking about sports, politics and fishing. He had a great sense of humor and was a ball buster of the highest caliber. He worked hard, loved his family and left us too soon. I raise my Sambuca glass in his honor and memory. Rest in peace from your friends Ed and Allison.”
