Carolyn, my wife Debbie, and I had many, many wonderful moments together with Gary in Stillwater, at their home, and every other Tuesday night at the restaurant where I played music. He definitely loved to talk about music, all his adventures, and he loved to listen to me play the guitar and sing in his restaurant and various places in Stillwater. We felt part of his family. He will be missed. May God give you all his peace and comfort as you remember the wonderful times spent together with Gary. – Ken & Debbie Wanovich

I know Gary will be missed. I worked with him back in the early 80’s at Vittorios. He was a man filled with passion for his craft. I was Blessed to have known him.

RIP Gary… He and Kim gave me a job fresh out of high school when they first opened back in the day. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED learning about wine pairings and the authentic foods he brought with him from across the river! Don’t want to see his legacy die. 😔 #keepmamamariasalive!
