Condolence From: Jack A Beckett
Condolence: Gary was a competitor that I held in the highest regard when I played Paden City HS in basketball and football. I graduated from Pine Grove High School ( now Valley )in 1954, and never saw him after that year. My condolences to his family.

Condolence From: John "Hoppy"& Barbara Hopkins
Condolence: Judy, and Family, We are so sorry about Gary's passing. He will be missed by all of us in our little town of Paden City. Gary was such a presence, his smile, his sense of humor. I never will forget all of us sitting under the umbrella at camp, while Hop and Jim stirred the Apple Butter, while we played that "wild game" of Dominoes. I can still hear your laughter, Gary, as you won at least 3 /4 games. You had that competitive spirit. The laughter while you collected money at the Fish Fry at the Catholic Church, you always gave me an extra jelly bean at "Check Out!' I will never forget you, Judy and Gary, for your support for Hoppy at he Rally they had for Hop's race for Mayor. I remember your words that day, " We need to stay close like this all the time in Paden City!" Thus we began the Community Fall Festival to promote friendship and that close community closeness. Judy, we offer prayers for you and your family, and those prayers will be for God's Blessings and Peace as you mourn the loss of your soul mate.
Much love, Hop and Barb
