To Anne & Caitlin
I first wanted to send my deepest sympathy on the sudden loss of your husband and father. I know that you have many fond memories to look back on to commemorate and honor Gary.
I remember Gary as a very kind and thoughtful individual who had time for everyone. He was a “mensch”. I am glad to have called him a friend. I was honored, when I had the opportunity to work with Gary, officiating a basketball game, but I would keep him level headed that Anne was the better Gladwell to ref with. Gary's life is for a blessing and he made this world a better place. Gary's memory will be with us for years to come.

I was so very sorry to hear of GARY’S passing. GARY was like a fourth son to me spending many days in my backyard swimming, playing basketball, enjoying picnics with my three sons and my family especially during their high school days. He was a FUN GUY and always polite to my husband and myself,!!!!! He will be sorely missed for sure. LOVE to you and your family, as always, MRS “K” the name GARY always called me!!!!!!!

It was with sadness that I learned today of Gary's passing. I had the pleasure of going to Saint Ann's with him but lost touch when we went to different high schools. I will pass along this information to other members of the Class of 1973. Reading the comments from the other posts, I was glad to see he remained as honorable as he was when I knew him. Best wishes to your family at this time of sorrow.

I was shocked to learn today of Gary's passing. I still remember when I met Gary and Ann some 34 years ago when we all attempted to play chip & putt. Gary was a wonderful, generous, talented and kind man who will not be soon forgotten. My best wishes, thoughst and prayers for Gary's devoted family.

Dear Gladwell Family,

Now I am ready. The tears, come and go. I thought losing Maggie M., was bad, well this one is different. I knew Maggie since 14, Gary since 1st grade 1967. I was in his
brother's Jeff class. In the morning, Jeff and John would hang till 8am so we could all go to school, their JOB, wake up Meshulah, me! We were all friends, spent 8 years plus. we went over each other's house. Gary was friends and best man to my cousin Tim, who if something was to happen to me, he who distributes. You never know, what is going to happen. I didn't know his wife or daughter, all I know was her reaction at Jackie and Eric's wedding, when my sister said, " I want to dance, give them a thrill to what you once were, a dancer! I keep to myself, you know, if his mother knew how I have been treated it would be seeing anger in her eyes! I always wanted him see me marry, he was bouncer at my 18th birthday, finally legal to drink, and busted the same night by him in 1979. he was another brother from a different mother. I did not know he had cancer, I just want to be quiet now, and NOT bothered. Rest in Peace Gary, this is wrong, you should still be here.
