    Gary was a great man and I was honored to know him. Gary and Charla participated in all the fun activities, events and trips at Sun City Lincoln Hills from our beginning in 2000. He was a joy to be around and a pleasure to know. We will miss him, and are thankful for the memories and his kindness.
