We have known Gary for so many years and our kids grew up together with Larry and Jeff. We appreciate that there is a way to give in his memory to our youth group. We will be giving a gift to Immanuel Bible Church’s youth group in his memory! Thank you!

Gary was a great guy that I had the pleasure of knowing since high school. My late husband, Richard was a fellow Local 190 and a friend to Gary. He always had a smile and always took time to talk to you. My condolences to the Moore family.
