Gary was very involved in our 40th reunion and were he here he would be helping us with the 50th.

We played in the same backfield (football second string) and
had some great times. Never got to visit him in Juneau, but
can still remember the phone call about our 40th.

Gary's dad was a policeman. I knew about Gary before I moved to Alamosa. No, I didn't get arrested. My mother was a babysitter for them sometimes...I think. Anyway, Gary was a great classmate. He is missed.

Gary was my good friend both during our high school daze and after.  We were both "only children" -- he by birth and me because my brother is six years older than me.  Actually Gary's dad got out of law enforcement and both his dad and mother taught school in Mosca making the drive to and from every day.  Gary went into the Air Force after a couple of years at Adams State.  We both got out of the military in 1966 and enjoyed many a cup of coffee at the Student Union or the Log Inn during the next few years of our college days.  Gary lived his dream of living in Alaska and of owning his own fishing boat which tragically sank during a storm one winter bringing his fishing career to an untimely end.  I believe teaching was just the means to an end for him although he did seem to enjoy it.  Fishing was his real love.  And in his later years he was a world traveler.  We enjoyed a couple of his visits when he was passing through Phoenix a year or two before his death.  I'm pretty sure that if he were still alive he'd be right in the middle of this reunion.  I believe Gary knew the Lord so we'll get to refresh the relationship one day in Heaven!
