I am so sorry to hear about Garyâ??s passing. I have many fond memories. From coaching my son, to coaching together, to teaching together. He truly loved the game of basketball and his dedication to the sport goes unsurpassed. He will truly be missed. So sorry I will be out of town for the funeral but will have him in my thoughts.
May his memory be for a blessing
