If it wasn't for Gary i wouldn't have met and made so many friends in the Neshaminy Valley Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club. Saturday's at his Shop working on bikes and listening to Rockabilly music always put a smile on my face. He was a true Craftsman. I'm very proud to call him my friend and will always miss him. Thanks for everything and always being there.

Gary was first and foremost a Gentleman and True Craftsman of the highest level! He could do almost anything and if he couldn't he researched the subject and taught himself how to do whatever was needed. Cars and motorcycles were his passion with no explanation necessary to anyone who knew him. I'm proud to have been a friend, knowing Gary since he had his little shop behind MK Foreign Car Service in Penndel. Goodspeed, rest in peace, you are missed. Your Friend, Carl Fronk

Gary was the best friend I was very fortunate to have known. He was very generous and unselfish, providing shop space for club meetings and restoration work on friends antique motorcycles. Because of Gary, I was exposed to a high level of perfection in exotic cars and motorcycles. Many of his clients are very wealthy, but he treated all his friends equally. No body with an interest in antique vehicles was beneath him.HE was a true gentleman God speed. with love Michael Raymond,friend
