  • Loved Gary’s dry humor. He loved the Great Race and enjoyed his interactions with his rally friends. Leonard & I will miss our annual visits In Scottsbluff, NE at Sugar Valley rallies .

  • Just learned of the passing of Gary. Always looked forward to the Great Race. I was chairman of the last race that over nighted in Grand Island. Had a lot of fun during that time.
    Gary will be missed by many.
