My condolences to Susan and the rest of the family. Gary was a gifted electrician, at Torx for many years! He was indeed a quiet man, probably because he was thinking all the time. That place was never the same after he retired! It never took Gary too long to figure a machine out, and get it back up and running. Was a lot of guess work afterwards, A LOT of downtime, and several trips by Mishawaka Electric, to finally fix a problem. I would always say, "You need to have Gary on speed dial. He'd know right away how to fix it!" Gary's one of those people that impacts your life and are never forgotten. Again, my condolences to the family. May God bless, and comfort each one of you.
