So sorry to hear of Gary's passing. Had many great times and memories at the many Moose functions and at the dirt tracks.
Prayers and condolences to the family.

Uncle Bish, was the BEST uncle ever. I spent so much of my time growing up hanging out with him. I was the chaperone for his dates with aunt Connie, I always had to sit in the middle of the seat between them in the car. They probably didn't even use a car seat or seatbelt for me. LOL. As I grew older, he taught me how to ride a minibike which was so much fun. As we all know he loved the races & I enjoyed going to Williams Grove with him. I still love car races to this day. He also had a love for music & bands. It was lots of fun hanging out at the Moose with him when I got older. He will be greatly missed.
Love Always,
