Gary loved spending time with his dogs and became a vital member of the Therapy Dog Organization known as Angel on a Leash. He also had a passion for Hunting, Fishing and The Great Outdoors. One of his best memories was hunting with his Father in Maine where they captured a Moose and two Black Bears. Gary’s Bear was one of the largest Black Bears ever captured in Maine at that time.
