    Gary was a childhood friend of my three brothers and Iβ€”the Brown kids. He was a great friend and we thought a lot of him. Life took us all in different directions, but he lives on in our very fond memories of playing football in a vacant lot, listening to his band practice, playing pool in our front room. He was a great guy, both funny and kind. Our sympathy to his family.
