    Gary was one of the "good guys", and a true mentor to many on SMF.  Positive in his comments, and knowledgeable in his own humble way.  Giving to his community both at home, and here.

    What a wonderful friend, family man, and gentleman.

    He is already missed by many, and deservedly so.

    May his family know the true friends he has here are also feeing the loss as well.  May God bless them in these sad times.

  4. This one man had a profound impact on many others far beyong his 66 years with us.  The legacy of his life will live on in that way.  I will honor him, as many others have said, with smoke.

    I am so shocked to hear this sad, sad news.  I spoke to him a few weeks ago prior to my judging a competition near his home.  I am so sorry for his family.  He was a super nice guy who loved his family and was really involved with his grandkids. A big loss.

  10. Wow I'm shocked to hear this sad news. I never had the pleasure to meet scarbelly (Gary). But he was the first person to greet me o. This forum and invite me to the so cal forum. I can tell he was a good man. I read lots of his post on here and his newer post with the kids at his house. Truly a great man that will be missed my condolences to his family.
  11. Rest in peace Gary.  So sad to hear this news.  My heart and condolences go out to his family. 

    Gary was alway quick to respond with helpful suggestions, words of encouragement and of course some playful ribbing.  I went back and looked at some of the threads I started and he provided congrats or useful suggestions on virually all of them. His contributions to this forum will be greatly missed.  [​IMG]
