Gary was the proud owner of “did he bite ya”, the rattlesnake wrangling dog. He was the only man who jumped the Albuquerque canal from end to end on a motorcycle. He also proudly would tell you he hung on to the roof of car as it ran through a wall of fire just for entertainment. He never lost a coin toss because heads he won and tails you lost.
Gary will forever be missed. In memory of the “Grouchy Gringo”, “bury me upside down so the world can kiss my ass.”
