Betty, John, Angela and family: I was saddened to hear about Gary's passing. this week. He and Bill McLaughlin hired me full time in accounting in January 1975 after I had worked in the Technical Services Lab for a year and a half while in Grad School at OSU

I enjoyed working with and learning from him during our careers at Worthington. He was a good man and true friend.

Gary and I had lunch together about 3 years ago at Max & Erma's in Dublin and were able to reflect on the "good times" we had
during the growth of WII.

Please stay safe and well during these difficult times and know that Gary was a special person.
