    Sad news ..... I had the pleasure of meeting Gary way back in '74 I believe , at the Canadian street rod Nats in Winnipeg and many other times at Goodguys events throughout the years. He was always what the name implied a GOOD GUY ! Condolences to the family .

    One of the true "good guys". He visited my place, rode in my 53 F100, and carried on like he was impressed, like he had nothing better himself. He was a true car guy and a true gentleman. He will be seriously missed.

    I was able to write a monthly column for GoodGuy's Gazette for over 10 years because of Gary (and Jim Aust)...Gary asked me several times if all my stories were "true"...he loved them. Sad to hear this today, he was one of the real "Good" Guy's...RIP. Condolences to Marilyn and the rest of his family...

    One of the finest humans I will ever know. I feel empty but inspired at the same time. Gary seemed to bring out the best in everyone he met. 'Gods speed Sir."
