  • I’ve just learned of Gary’s passing. I will truly miss his phone calls, cheerful voice, and him calling me Dad. His laugh was priceless! He always kept in touch even though it has been nearly 20 years since we worked at Bob Caldwell Chrysler together. He was always hungry for more knowledge in Automotive Technology. He was proud that he could find the solutions to the impossible to find problems. A true Master in his field.
