  2. I was so blessed to have met Gary in 2020 and spend many nights by phone and text discussing travel plans that finally became a reality in 2022 and the beginning of 2023. I have so many great memories being his travel partner. He brought many smiles to people’s faces that we met along the way. My deepest condolences to his lovely children and grandchildren. They meant the world to him. No matter where I go or what I am doing, I always think “I wish you were here”.

    So sorry to have heard of Gary’s sudden passing – I met Gary through Geri ( his travelling Partner) when they visited here in Coquitlam BC Canada. He had a great sense of humor and was such a likable character. I am so happy he got some great travels in with Geri.
    My condolences go out to all his family.

  8. I first met Gary 10 years ago on a Vacations to Go Singles Cruise. We met online on the Yahoo chat Group before the cruise. My flight from Canada was to arrive in Florida at 5:00 am. Gary offered me his hotel room for showering/sleeping before boarding the ship. He assured me he would not be there. He would be out exploring Florida. It was a brave thing I did, trusting this man I had not yet met in person to be true to his word. I took him up on his offer and arrived at his hotel room wearing my “Canadian” t-shirt (he laughed at my shirt). He was true to his word. We chatted a bit then he left the room so that I could get some sleep. He was to call me at 10:30 to wake me up so I could shower, then call again at 11:00 to see if I was finished before he would return to the hotel room.
    From there our adventures began. Brunch, mimosas then off to the ship for a fabulous cruise (my 1st) experience. Two years later (2015) he invited me on a cruise with his daughter Maggie and her friend. To Gary’s surprise (and to mine), I said yes. Again he was every bit a gentleman. We had so much fun! In 2017 he came to visit me at my home in Canada. We had a wonderful time exploring Niagara Falls and listening to live Blues entertainment. I recall Gary (being from St. Louis) saying “what does Canada know about the Blues?” Well, Canada showed him. He was very impressed.
    Thank you Gary for showing me that gentlemen still exist… and for the fun memories.
    To Maggie and family, I’m very sorry for your loss.
