To Gary's family, I am praying for you on your loss. I am a member of the Cumberland Valley Civil War Round Table of Chambersburg PA. I have known Gary since he started attending our meetings several years ago. We also would meet together for dinner before our meetings. Gary was very helpful to our group, even though he didn't have an official leadership role. He led in several ways. Gary was always happy and upbeat and a pleasure to be around. We at CVCWRT will miss him. Thanks Gary.
Your friend,
Larry A

So sorry about Gary's passing, he was such a valued member of our profession. Gary was an instructor at Sherman College and continued serving the Chiropractic Fellowship of Pennsylvania to benefit other chiropractors. His loss will be felt by all and he will be missed.
