Gary was my friend and I will miss him dearly. He was a great ball player and friend, that gave 100% to anything that he did. He had health problems even back in high-school, but never let them beat him, He fought the battle until the end....Bruce Rogers

Gary and Phyllis were my dear friends. I saw them fall in love. Gary as I recall was a great fullback on our team. He could really run with the ball. Phyllis, I hope to visit with you at the reunion. Love, BK

I met Gary in English class and that pretty much set up the course my life would take for 25 years. We married in 1974 and lived in the Dallas area for several years. Gary lost kidney function in 1976 and was on dialysis at home for 3 years. He received his first kidney transplant and things were much better for a few more years, but this transplant was ultimately rejected and he required another. This transplant did not go as smoothly as the first. He did, however, make it through the rocky start and we built a beautiful log home in Nocona and adopted a baby, Bo, in 1989. Gary died from a heart attack on May 5, 1990, just twelve days before Bo's first birthday. Gary would have been a world class father and my biggest regret is that he did not get to see Bo grow up. That was not without it's trials, but he is now in basic training in Ft Sill, OK and he'll make a fantastic soldier one day soon. I still remember my high school years as some of the best times...we had it good, didn't we?!!
