Sue, Ray and the Stiles Family,
So sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. Our deepest condolences to the Stiles family. Gary was such a good friend to everyone he knew. If something on a car didn’t work no matter what it was he could fix it. If it didn’t look good he could make it look better than new. Always the perfectionist with his work. I know that everyone who knew him has now got an empty space in their heart. Gary was the best. RIP my friend.
