    I’ll always remember my Uncle Gary as the funny and happy guy he was. He always knew how to make us laugh and never took life too seriously. He was generous and fun to be around. I’m sad that he never got to meet my daughter. I know she would have loved him. We will truly miss him 💕

    My dad was the best father a girl could have! He was such a caring, giving ,kind, funny ,man. I’m going to miss our daily talks! I wish my son Tyler could have gotten to know him better. My dad was definitely one of a kind crazy he was always had the best stories! And anybody that knows my dad Rolling Stones with definitely his passion miscalculation. He’s in no more pain and suffering and up there with family and loved ones and he’s being taken care of and they’re showing him the ropes I know I will see you again Daddy. Rock and roll. Your daughter, Jennifer Rasmussen

    Gary I cannot believe I am writing condolences as I am doing it,it is surreal, Being your sister you made easy for me because you were the best brother I could have asked for,, you were always there for me for 62 years. I want to call or text you and I have to stop which seems it is not fair, and breaks my heart, I have so many memories of us, We had a great childhood our Wildwood days going to Bernie’s to buy Christmas gifts eating pickles playground and our favorite eating pomegranates(Chinese apples shopping for clothes going to see The Temptations at Latin Casino and an entire lifetime of fun. Then we were married and the memories of having all the kids in our parents backyard, the bbqs basketball wiffle ball the Easter egg hunts swimming in the pool every week I will cherish all those memories. I will cherish our memories in Florida also how you went out of your way taking me everywhere that you had explored and showed us such a great time and the beautiful house that you loved was beautiful, Two months ago you called to say Thank You to me I said for what? The answer was for Motown, we laughed. I will always love you for being You always making me laugh,smile and being the best brother ever. I will see you someday OVER THE RAINBOW the song you loved. ❤️❤️❤️

    The world lost a beautiful soul, a caring father, a loving husband, a son so loved and adored, a brother admired and cared for deeply, an awesome and fun loving uncle and an all around good man when the world lost you, Uncle Gary. Because of your passing, we all feel tugs and pulls at our heart as we begin to process and cope with this tremendous loss. My heart is broken, and it aches for the grief that your passing has brought to all of us. You were so loved, and so liked. I am deeply saddened to have to say goodbye, but even more so broken for those absolutely closest to you. I vow to keep those happy times in the forefront of the minds of everyone you know and love, most certainly my mom, your beautiful sister Pat, and your loving adoring mom, my MomMom, as they are so broken. I am grateful for the impact you left on all of us and the many happy times and memories our family shared through the years. You touched so many lives. You will always be remembered in my mind as my fun loving, loud and crazy Uncle Gary Razz with a heart of gold. You lived a life of kindness, compassion and generosity towards everyone whose path you crossed, and I will always be thankful and grateful for the kindess you showed me. One thing that stands out in my mind, is my senior year of high school. I was saving and struggling to pay for my seniors end of year festivities such as prom and the senior class trip to Disney World.
    You happened to come into some extra money, and one of the first things you did was to so generously gifted me a large sum. That generous gift changed my whole senior year and allowed me to buy the dress of my dreams.. not just any dress but THE dress of my dreams, for my senior prom. It also allowed me to have the incrediable experience of going to Disney World. The dress money may seem frivolous and stupid to some but to me it meant everything. And flash forward several years, unbeknownst to me, I ended up marrying my senior prom date and my husband kept the scrap of my dress all those years until I ended up sewing it into my wedding dress as my “something blue”. Uncle Gary, I thank you for changing the trajectory of my senior year and making me feel so happy and beautiful with your generous gift.
    I know that were your soul is resting now is peaceful, calm and tranquil. I know that you are free of any pain or sadness. I take comfort in knowing that you have a front row seat, best one in the house, to watching each of us, like a movie reel from above. And while it may seem unfair as your loved ones begin to heal, in those moments of darkness that grief, mourning and loss ultimately bring, We may not see you, but we will feel you. Maybe in that random penny found heads up on the street. Maybe in voices of your favorite Rolling Stone song playing on the car radio. It is in those moments, in those otherwise seemingly ordinary days, in just that moment when we may not have been looking, that you will be giving us a sign. It will be you gracing us with your presence, and we will forever be waiting for you to show up. How beautiful it will be for you to watch your grandchildren grow from the heavens above, how amazing for you to be able to keep your own children safe protected and watched over from a comfy spot on the clouds. Your memory will live on forever, and you will forever be with us in spirit💕
