    Gary…you are so missed already. I love you with all my heart. You were never a brother-in-law…from the very first you were my brother. I will never forget your wonderful heartfelt laughter when something struck you unawares. You were always generous, affectionate, loving, kind and caring to all. Thank you for loving my sister so well. Thank you for loving your boys so well. Thank you for showing your boys how to love and care for others by your example of caring for your own mother, wife, kids and realitives so well. You gave us all so much! I love you and promise I will do all I can to care for Maureen, Sean and Matthew.

    Gary has been an important member of my family since the day I met him.You have always been a man full of love and friendship to those around him, full of pride about his sons and a wonderful and loving husband to my cousin Maureen. I will miss you forever my Giant loving friend and cousin.

    I did not know Gary personally but did know him through my daughters, Michelle Walsh and Melissa Stafford. Melissa met Gary at a wedding reception in Florida. She described him as “always sharing his laughter with everyone in the room.” My very deepest sympathy goes out to his wife, Maureen and his wo sons, Sean and Matthew. I wish Gary a safe journey on this new road he travels.

    May God grant you grace,

    Sherry Stafford

    Maureen, we are so sorry for your loss. We pray for your broken heart and the hearts of your two sons. We didn’t know Gary as well as we would have liked, but he was always so kind and friendly to us at McCann family gatherings. He seemed like a great guy, and we admired him for that. We hope that your sadness will be eased by the wonderful memories of this good guy in your lives.
    Please accept our deepest sympathy in this time of grief.
    Gene and Marlene….
