Celebrating the life of Gary E. Mims
Thank you for signing Gary E. Mims's Guestbook
So terribly sad for the loss of this great man. Gary will be sadly missed. He always had a smile on his face and was always working on something. He was a very talented man. It was wonderful having the Mims as neighbors, and I always enjoyed talking with Gary. Rest in peace and you all will be in our families thoughts and prayers.

To Bob & I, Gary was the kindest, caring person this side of heaven.
When we were struggling with Bob's health Gary went above and beyond for us and always with a smile. He may have seemed somewhat shy but if you mentioned his wife Marian he would light up like a candle .She was the love of his life.
Forever in our hearts
Jan and Bob Nill
