Gary was an incredible Bible Schollar. He retained his deep interest in world news and prophecy.

He knew much about the condtions in the WCOG in the difficult  times of 1970--90. He knew the key players in the fall of the church. He stayed in contact with several over they yeas.

Gary was always kind  and understanding. We communicated several hundred times over the past  40-50 years. His wife Robbie was a very loyal supporter to Gary and a sounding board for his many ideas.

He will be missed by all who knew him. He remained faithful to God to the end.

I was surprised and very saddened by Gary's death.  He was as assitant (called 2nd man in those days) to me in Oklahoma City and Tulsa churches from 1963-64.  Always enthusiastic and filled with energay, he took copius notes even on our casual discussions and made a ladger of the principles of pastoring churches.

Kind, caring, somewhat impulsive, but a BIG HEART and generous to a fault. 

He died on what would have been Molly's and my 62 wedding anniversary -- August 16, 2021.  Molly and I always thought so highly of Gary and tho we were separated by almost 2000 miles, we kept in touch with the greatest respect and love for each other.

I will have him in my fond memories till I expire.  My condolences to his wife, Robbie.
