Outgoing, vibrant, and loving are a just a few words that describe Gary. He was also a family oriented man. His family was everything to him. Gary loved to talk to people and people loved to talk to him. His favorite sport was football, especially the San Francisco 49ers. But nothing compared to his beloved Tarheels. Michael Jordan was his favorite player and designer, if it didn’t have a “jumpman” on it he would not wear it. Everyone will miss Gary standing on his front porch being the neighborhood watch.
