Ed and Shirley,Sorry to hear of Garry's untimely passing. I'll always remember Garry driving myself and Brad around in his Plymouth Duster as he was the only one of age to have a driver's license at the time.

Shirley and Ed,I was so sad to hear of Garry's end of life on earth. I have so many special memories of Garry and all of your family, starting with the day we moved to Kim Acres Drive right beside you all.  I was 4 years old. What a wonderful childhood we had and all your boys getting their summer crew cuts still makes me laugh.  Please accept my prayers for peace and comfort!

Garry and Krysti gave me the pleasure of watching their children which became a a long lasting friendship. Garry would bring the kids to my house at 6 am and when I opened the door he would be singing or laughing with the kids. He just enjoyed life and I used to think if only there was more people like him the world would be a better place. I was blessed to have known Garry and will always be thankful for the time I spent with him and his family!

You are the master of Garry-rigging!! You should have written a book about your Garry-rigging repair techniques. It would have been a best seller with DIYers.Red
