  1. Gary and I worked together at Hiawatha Homes. He was a kind person and very patient as he worked with individuals who lived at Hiawatha. Conversations with Gary were never short. I truly enjoyed working with Gary. My condolences to his family.

  2. Gary lived up over the hill from me as a child. We graduated together from Chatfield. Yes, he was a very interesting person and will be missed. RIP Gary.. Debra Davidson Smith.. The neighbor over the hill

  3. Gary and I first met each other at an electronic music composition class I was teaching at RCTC. Gary’s work in music as it related to math made it clear that he was a deep thinker and explorer of new ideas. Not only did he create wonderful music compositions, but his comments and enthusiasm for fellow student’s works helped create a fun and open learning experience for all.

    My deepest condolences to Gary‘s family and friends and all those he impacted so positively during his time here. He will be greatly missed.
