We were the best of friends for owing up! We mowed lawns and saved our money to go to Nelsons in Cleveland to buy arrows for 75 cents a piece, then go home to our game of rolling 3 lb. coffee cans across a path for the other to shoot arrows at our moving target! Of course we broke all the arrows and repeated th process each week.

He had a natural ability with the guitar and could play almost any song by ear!

There was a huge ok tree in his yard in which we built a treehouse/fort! We gathered 100s of acorns to use as ammo against our enemies on the ground! (David Baker and Curtis Kerch)! They were quite effective! Later we stepped it up a notch by gathering may-pops from the ditch bank! Back In the tree house wed load the maypops with firecrackers light em and bomb David and Curtis!

Growing up on Yale Street was a blast! Rest In Peace old friend

Gary was a dad to me. He took us in as if we were his own. He provided us with a home and food on the table. I may be a step son but I consider him my father just like my own. He was good at heart and love to live life outdoors and with music. I will truly miss you dad. Thanks for all you did for us.
