He entertained many a family member & co-worker with his drawings, which have been saved for many years by people who had received them. He loved music, and could play the drums. His sisters recalled as a child he would drum on anything. His sense of humor not only extended to his cartoons, but also to his telling of jokes. He loved Rodney Dangerfield, and Milton Berle. He would memorize their jokes to tell others. Food was one of his guilty pleasures, and he enjoyed trying out new restaurants, as well as eating at old favorites.

They spent many a wonderful vacation there in Catalina during their 31 years of marriage. Gary was preceded by a sister. He is survived by his wife, brother, 4 sisters, uncle, aunt, nieces, nephews, and many cousins. He touched the hearts of many, and put a smile on their faces.
