    We’re very sorry to see Gary go. He was always happy to see us when we came by the house and he loved to see our little Matty.

    Some of my favorite memories of Gary were the times Matt, Chad or Mitch would bring up that time Jordan allegedly pushed off Bryan Russel to make the game winning buzzer beater over the Jazz. It was just hilarious to see him react and defend his favorite NBA team from his sons. There was a camaraderie they all shared as avid sports fans that endured for years.

      I’m so sorry Brady! I’m thinking about you and your family during this time. Stay strong and if you need anything don’t hesitate to ask.
