What a delight to have spent several years as a coworker along side “Garo”... as he was called by many! That dry stoic humor was appealing to someone like me who came from a family of serious sarcasm! I considered him a dependable friend! He left us way too soon, he will be missed. Rest In Peace my friend. Reply to this comment

Met Gary in elementary school and we had typing together in high school. We reconnected on Facebook 6 years ago and have been close friends ever since. I will miss you, my friend...we had lots of adventures together and there will never be another you! Reply to this comment

Can't remember when I first met Garo, but I recognized his dry sense of humor right off. Didn't work that much together until I went to 675 and then for 6 years, I enjoyed the camaraderie and sense of humor. A fine man I was glad to call my friend. Going to miss you, fella. As if I hadn't for the past 6 months or so at the Trattoria Rolando. Requiescat in pace, my friend. Reply to this comment
