    Peggy I am so sorry to hear about Gary’s passing. I remember you both from high school and while I did not know you two had married one another I remember Gary as a really nice guy who had a gentle smile and a pleasing personality. My arms are around you during this really hard time. I live in winston-Salem or I would be with you at the visitation.

  2. JAMES A. BROWN says:

    I am very sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. He & I as teenagers use to hang around the Johnson City Airport washing and waxing airplanes for the owners and our pay was a lot of airplane rides. In later years I was flying for a Major airline and found out Gary was flying for the FAA and I thought I would run into him, but never did. I was told he was living in the northern part of the country. Wish I had known he moved back to the Johnson City area. Would have liked to link up and talk about the old days. He was always very polite and easy going. Fly west my friend!!!
