Sending my condolences to the family of Gary David, especially his wife, Judy.  It's hard to remember senior year at St. Cat's without thoughts of Gary.  He was a real gentleman.  He will be fondly remembered for that classic red corvette.  So sorry for your loss Judy.

Deepest sympathy to Gary David's wife and family.

Gary was such a fun loving guy in high school. I remember getting a ride from him in a huge snowstorm trying to get to St. Cats. Can't even remember if they closed school, but we sure had fun rideing down Carlisle Ave.

It was like a sleigh ride. A really sweet man was Gary.

Keeping his family in my prayers. Betty Tully (Hanson) '62
