Nancy I’m so sorry to hear about Gary’s passing. I know you’ve lost a lifetime partner and his IAFF family has lost a great longtime leader. I will always be grateful for Gary’s generosity and welcoming me, as a new State President, into the IAFF fold over 40 years ago. He was a gentleman, strong union advocate and one of Michigan’s finest. My deepest condolences to you, his personal and union families
