Jeff and Celia Homsher

Celia and I are were so sad to hear the news about Gary. My memories of Gary are all fond and filled with admiration. We were in different circles but out lives came together on the football field. Gary was soft spoken, easy going individual that hit like freight train on the foot ball field. He was such an anomoly as he was an amazing player but he required no fanfare or hype. I was always so impressed with Gary and I truly looked up to him knowing that he was an impressive athlete, student, and individual all wrapped up into one. The world will miss this great great man. I'm privileged to have known him.
