We think of Gary and Joan every time we drive up Rocky Canyon by your old home. Enjoyed your time here when worked at the post office, both in Creston and before that when Julie worked with Sharon at Paso office. Gary, like Ross, was a great guy and a superior craftsman. He will be missed.

Gary has been a close friend sense we were shipmates in the Navy although after that we were a distance from each other but remained in touch especially the last few years.

Bob, Georgia and Sophie Henry
