He also worked for DMI in West Fargo, road construction in the Fargo area, and had most recently been employed for Russell Berg Construction.  Gary was united in marriage to Lori Cossette in 2005.

    Dear Lori and Terry,

    Although I have never met you Lori, I was in High School with Gary and Terry in Rocklake. I was in the class right in the middle of both, Gary a year below and Terry a year above.

    Such a quiet and shy boy with a very kind heart and spirit – but yes, deep down you knew he had a wonderful sense of mischievious humor.

    Coming to Rocklake as an older student, I knew how difficult it was to start in a new school. I felt this bond – but as a teenager never knew how to reach out and share it.

    But I do want you to know that over the years I’ve always held a special place in my heart for both Gary and Terry – and often thought of them hoping God was watching over them.

    My deepest heartfelt sympathy goes out to you both and your families on the lost of Gary.

    May you hold precious memories forever!

    Horace ND
    We’ve known Gary for 20 years or so and will say he definitely made the neighborhood A LOT more entertaining. Our boys remember that he often dropped off little bags of tootsie rolls and wondered how he knew their favorite candy!
    Gary knew how to have fun and was always ready for the next adventure. We will surely miss his sense of humor and zest for life. We hope it will help in some small way to know that our thoughts are with you.
    The Cameron family
