I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, who made Heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1&2

  1. Our Sincere Sympathy and Condolences to Beverly and their family. May the God of peace give them peace and comfort. We all loved Gary like a brother. He was a joy to be around he was a great prayer warrior he loved the Lord and showed it by what he did for Him. Gary will greatly be missed by myself and all of his fellow Gideon brothers in Christ.. God, peace and comfort be with all Gary’s family . John 14 : 1-4 . John & Nancy Perez. COS South Camp Gideon

  2. Our deepest sympathies go out to Beverly, Brandan, Andrea and her family. Gary was not just a really good man, but a godly man. He adored his wife, valued his children like no other, cherished ‘the girls’, thought highly of his son-in-law, and had a devoted love for his mom. He is someone to be admired and was always there whenever we called on him. He helped my family so often and without hesitation. We probably never thanked him enough.

  3. Matthew 5:4 says, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” I continue to pray that you will be comforted. Beverly, Brandon, Andrea, Brian, Kelsey, and Bella you are all in my prayers. I thank God for the blessing of Gary as my cousin and for his loving God fearing family.
    God’s blessings to all of you today and in the days ahead.
    In Christ’s love,
    Sandra Klose

  4. I know this is for condolences, but I wanted to say something on here. I haven’t been able to say much so far, all I was able to do was write the Obit and God somehow got me through singing at his service. I do feel he has left this Earth too early, too soon. Dad is someone who truly loves living, he shouldn’t be gone yet. We didn’t expect it, sometimes I thought he would outlive me, and live to 100 or something. He is my friend and my teacher. I will miss him every day for the rest of my life, I know what he stands for and what he’s taught me to stand for, that’s why I know beyond a shadow of a doubt he enjoys his reward in Heaven today. I am proud of him, and everything he has done to advance the kingdom of God. Dad, your on my mind every second of every day, and I love you. You mean the world to me. Brandan Thanks to all, for your kindness, help and prayers, it meant so much. Keep those prayers coming. God Bless.
