Becky & family-I am going to miss Gary! What a great guy and a real leader. Really sorry I didn’t get to hear him play with the Boys in Reading. We had great times at the fishing trips to Lake Erie and the Pelee Club. Many fond memories of the Sigma Chi Homecoming float parties with Smitty as the creator/captain of the float projects. I am sorry that I’ll be out of town for his service. May God grant you and the family strength and support . Jeff and Donna Felts

You’re not gone. You’ll ALWAYS live in my heart. You’re among a select few that I consider better than a best friend. Rest well...I’m so glad you graced my life, Smitty. I’m still numb. Play on, my brother.

I am so sorry to hear of Smitty's passing. The Marshal team lost a great volunteer and a genuine good guy with a wonderful personality.
