    Tammy, Deb, and Brenda –

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. Seeing him show up at my wedding dance in SD years ago made me forgive him for all the times he made me so mad as a kid :):) As an adult, I know now that he had my best interest at heart. I have many fond memories of him and your mom.

  • Glenn Anderson says:

    Gary and I were good friends in High School, same class, both trumpet players. I loved his old 49 Ford that we had to push to start. I kept my smokes in the glove compartment.
    We also joined the SDANG at the same time. Though I had only seen him once since his ANG retirement, I always knew that he was a true-blue friend. We’ll see you later, Gary, my old Bud!

  • Jerry and Phyllis Hellwig says:

    So sorry to hear about Gary. Jerry and I graduated from Washington High with Gary and considered him a good friend. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
