Gary was always first and foremost a family man who loved his wife, Joyce, and his children, David and Andrea.
He was a no nonsense guy, just a good person. I was so honored when he said he would be the Best Man at my wedding. We all were blessed to have Gary in our life.

Rest in Peace, Gary.

Love,
John and Ewa Leachko

I am soooo sorry for the passing of Gary. My heartfelt sympathy to Joyce, David, Andrea and his loving sister, Sandra. I have a million happy memories I can share about sweet Gary from the time he was a little boy. He was adorable, funny, loving and full of mischief. He grew up to be a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He and his sister had a very close, loving relationship. I always looked forward to seeing Gary, as he was so much fun to be around, always joking and laughing. I'm glad we got to go on a few day trips before he became so ill. Those are happy times and I'll always cherish those memories. Gary will be sorely missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. He was a gem. Until we meet again, my brave cousin. Love you. RIP
