To my dear Aunte, please know that although I didn't see you and Uncle Gary often you are always in my thoughts and of course my heart. Uncle Gary was one of kind. He always had a smile and and a joke for everyone he meet the world will be a darker place and our family will have a little less laughter without him. R.I.P my dear uncle.

My most sincere condolences to Gary and his family.
Gary is a very caring and respectful person. In the 6 years working at his Toronto office,Gary has been alway supporting, he taught me how to work with customers, he is very patient, always encourage, encourage.
He supportsme from a accounting stuff to take on more tasks, digital tech support, sales etc.
He is a very righteous person, I trully respect him.
The things that I am very grateful is Gary supports my belief and my volunteer work to bring freedom to my home country.I practice Falun Gong, a meditation cultivation system from ancient China, but current under communist government’s persecution. Gary supports my course, whenever I need time off to work on my mission, raise public awareness about the persecution, he always helps me, signs petitions, even get other people to sign petitions for me.
One thing I am sure his soul is happier than ever, because he is good
person, a honest and righteous person, according to our culture a good
person will be rewarded by heaven.

Gary for me was more than a friend.
it is difficult to tell you how much I will miss him.
You have been lucky to be fifty years with him and I have been fortunate enough to be with him at least once a year in the past 25 years.
Now I can tell you that when we left each other last January,I saw something different in his eyes but I did not want to believe it and I said bye to him like every year.
He was a good and valuable man and I will pray for him.

Our sympathies to Marie and all the family! Vaughan has lost a great golf partner.! Gary was a caring, giving person, and he will be missed by us.!
He was always ready to help people when needed. I remember his strong support for our Ontario Games held here in London in 2004!
We always loved our best ball tournaments, to share lots of laughter with Marie and Gary!
Love Vaughan and Jane
