  1. So sorry for your loss. I was sad to hear of his passing. He was always kind to me, and had a unique sense of humour that I remember well. I will be thinking of all of you.

  2. Gary was my first shiftboss at Falconbridge. I credit him with showing me how a calm, respectful manner will get you respect from your crew. I enjoyed seeing him again at his turkey shoots. He was a genuinely good guy. I have nothing but respect for Gary. Rest in peace.
