It is with great sadness to hear of Gary's passing. I always enjoyed talking about NASCAR and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. He was very dedicated to his job at Brandywine Hospital. He also worshipped his wife Audrey. Today my heart belongs to her and their family. May he rest in peace, and may God provide him with the best available seats for NASCAR races from heaven.🙏

I only met Gary once... maybe twice... and enjoyed the moments we shared. An instant friend. A quick smile. Love and care. These are the things that he reminds me of. Hugs and prayers to you Audry and the family during these days, and the coming days and months as you, grieve, remember, and begin to navigate life without husband, dad, grandpa, etc. Hugs again!!!
