My happiest memory of Gary, is he and his friends sitting in “ the old high schools” lunchroom, near the coffee spot, just always laughing and enjoying life. I would always get hot cocoas, and he would say good morning. Big smile on his face. A little thing, but it started my day in a positive way. Gary , I will miss your kindness. RIP

Gary brings back many memories from Waterbury, Middlebury, and especially during the summer outings up in New Hampshire.
May God be with him and all his family.
