    So sorry for your loss. I worked with Gary at Trane, he drove my witness test customers and he put in many long days and nights. He always went the extra mile running customers for personal needs and he always had a joke. His smile and fun loving soul will be missed. RIP Gary. Prayers to his family for healing.
