Gary was one of a kind; a man with a heart of gold. He was such a sports buff. He loved to teach and coach youth baseball at Mitchell Field in St. Paris. He was very involved with his two fantasy football leagues that he managed. He was a diehard Gonzaga and Saints fan. One of his favorite pastimes that he passed on to his children was mushroom hunting. He couldn’t wait for spring to get into the woods, but most of all he cherished every moment he shared with his grandkids.
