    Uncle Gary was one of the greatest men I have ever known. He was like a Father to me. He was a wonderful Christian example. Words can not describe the impact he has had on all our lives. He was hard working, kind, honest, loyal… The list is endless. He was loved by all and will be missed so much.

    He will be missed, I loved to hear him sing on Sunday mornings before he got off work and then went to church.

    Gary was my beloved Cousin. He was one of my Mother’s (Ida Dell Ragland Choate’s) Pall Bearers. Even though I didn’t see him often, when I did, he always had a smile, and a kind word for everyone. With tears in my heart, and eyes, we say goodbye for now. Many prayers to his loving Family. Gary was loved by all, and will be missed by many.
