"I met Gary back in the mid 90's through work, he was always with a smile and took time to stop and chat...his demeanor made my job so much easier. Will keep you in my thoughts...prayers for his family. May he rest in peace. (Dennis Mower retired CHGE employee)"

"Deepest sympathy to the Feddes family. I grew up with Gary and his sisters, close friends with his sister Manice. I hold many fond memories of ice skating on their pond in Ruby. May God bring total comfort to all. Love Linda (Reiff) Koenig-Warren"

"Ginny, My dad told us of Gary's passing and we are all so sad for your loss. Although we more often only got to wave from the water to your dock or the boat - I feel like I knew you and Gary both far more than that through all the stories my dad shared. I know he valued Gary's friendship and both your presences at the lake tremendously. Our thoughts are with you and all your family. May he rest in peace. Best wishes, Danielle Donovan Llewelyn and family"
