I was passing through the obits and saw that Gary had passed. I remember him well from Big O, as I am sure the whole town does. Sad to see such an icon pass, but we are all getting to that time of life. To the family, may you find the peace that passes all understanding, found only in the promises of God, through the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. God bless you all. GT

Here was a great guy. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. I saw him many times at Big O. He always had a friendly word. We also knew him in the late 80s when he worked at the Phillips on Townsend. He impressed my young daughter with his kindness and friendly attitude. When she was about 3 I asked Melanie what she wanted to do when she grew up. She said she wanted to be a hair doer and work at Gary's gas station. Thanks Gary for making this old world a kinder and better place. Bob Cornelius
