    I worked with Gary at JB Hunt and we also rode together a few times. He was one of the kindest, sweetest guys I ever met. I am praying for the family. Two deaths so close together is hard to bare.

    I can’t express how sorry I am to hear of the passing of Joyce and Gary….they both meant a lot to me. I regret being so distant these past few years and missing out on getting to know them better. I will be thinking of you. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.

    Gary was a student of mine at West Fork Middle School in 7th grade and then at West Fork High School when he was in 9th, 10th, and 11th grade. He was always polite. Gary was a hard worker, and a very pleasant young man. I am so sad that he left us at such a young age. I also remember speaking with his mother, Joyce. My condolences for the Genereau for the loss of both Joyce and Gary.
