Condolence: Neighbors to the VanSlykes growing up as well as working at the farm taking care of calves when I was younger. Gary helped me to secure a loan for my own college education and was always someone I thought well of and seeing and visiting with on my own visits back to WNY. Even here in South Dakota as I have heard about the news, I can't believe he's gone. My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family at this time. Gary was a wonderful man.
Condolence: Ginny and family: Bev and I were shocked to receive word of Gary’s passing. We send our deepest sympathy to you and your family as we fondly reflect on our time together during the 90’s and early 2000’s. A very good man.
Condolence: Ginny, I was so sorry to learn of your loss of Gary. He was a fine fellow. I fondly remember many good times with Gary the year (1957) that we lived in Pike. I’ll write more in a US mail letter to you. Sue adds her condolences too.
