Garry was one of the nicest people I have ever met. Paul worked with Garry for many years and I was lucky enough to meet Marge and Garry 7 years ago. As soon as we met we became instant friends. There was never a lunch or dinner that lasted less than 2 hours. We always had so much to talk about and Garry was the best story teller, especially if it was something funny. Garry was one of those rare people that you would never have to ask for help doing anything, he just always offered it sincerely. Our deepest sympathy to Marge and her family. Garry will deeply be missed.

Gary and Chuck were the closest to blood brothers as one can get as they and their Sisters are double cousins.

Although estranged by miles and years apart; Gary and I only shared a brief short time together on a motorcycle tour; I still felt as close to him as anyone could feel towards a brother. I’m only sorry we didn’t do it again.

Gary will be missed by friends and family.

RIP GARY DEAN HARRIS

One of the best friends I've ever had, goes for Marge also. Many memories of him and my husband deer hunting and us arriving at his house at 3 a.m. and helping wrap Christmas gifts for the girls. Will miss you more that words can say. Say hello to Todd when you see him up there. Wess also. You will always be loved.

Uncle Garry will be deeply missed. I have so many fond memories from my childhood that I will always carry with me; horseback riding at our family reunion, going swimming, walking through the maze at Cozy Acres, and the annual Halloween hay ride. The family Christmas parties at Uncle Garry and Aunt Marge’s house every year when I was a child will always be cherished memories. Uncle Garry will always be loved and remembered always.
