We have some wonderful, cherished memories with this gentle giant, Gary Boothroyd.. Beers and burgers @ Firehouse, bonfires, and game nights. He would do anything for folks, having a huge heart. Loved his wife, Jacque, children, grandchildren, etc...and his pets as well. There was an empty place in our lives when the family moved to Utah, but was glad to see them several times in Utah. So sorry for your loss. Peace & love
So saddled to hear the news of my old friend of almost 60 years. Gary and I were neighbors in Lakewood in the early 60's and I have nothing but good memories and know Gary to have been very pleasant, even if times were not so perfect. We were in the same kindergarten class and we were also friends. I reconnected recently again with Gary and was hoping to see him soon. God Bless you and Rest in Peace
