    I’ve played golf with Gary for almost 20 years. We also worked together at Papa John’s and CVS. I will miss you very much my friend! Until we meet again.

    It still hasn’t hit me Big Guy. I was fortunate to have you in my life and as a Friend. You were like a Father to me at the same time. I know you are in a better place now even though the selfish part of me still wants you here. I was glad to see you last week not knowing two days later I would find out the devastating news. I love and Miss you. Say hello to Kathy for me. Your Buddy – Ryan

    I worked with Gary as a carrier for the Courier and Press for several years. I always tried not to “poke the bear”; he was always fair and supportive of me. Sorry for your loss. Love his smile!

    Gary- I was privileged to have you as a co-worker at PapaJohn’s, and I am blessed for the way you have befriended and looked after my brother Ryan over the years. I am fortunate to have helped Gary Jr and Chase have a placed to land at Papa Johns’s over the years as they have navigated their journeys, and I will miss our talks after a late 9 holes shooting the breeze at the cart barn at Fendrich. I think your dad was blessed to have a son that looked after him all of these years, and I will always remember how quick you were to help me and others i there time of need. I don’t miss 6 hour rounds of golf with you, Tony, and your group. Abandoning that I. 2007 was a smart decision. But I know my brother always enjoyed you and the group,, and that makes me happy. I hope you get tomolay 1& every morning, take Kathy shopping every afternoon, and be surrounded with love every evening. Rest In Peace sir, and know that I am here for your boys when they need it.

    Gary- It was a pleasure having you as a co-worker for over a decade, amd I feel blessed we could help Chase and Gary Jr over the years. Thank you for befriending and helping my brother over the years, I don’t miss the 6-hour rounds of golf, and I am glad I abandoned that in 2006. But I know my brother always looked forward to it, and I know you loved the game. I’ll miss our late night fat chewing sessions by the Fendrich cart barn after a late 9 holes. I hope you get play 18 every day, take Kathy shopping every afternoon , and feel the love of family every evening. Rest In Peace!
