    Pam and family we all here at Lowes are sad to hear about Garry’s passing. We loved to hear about his day at his other job and the great traffic stories he shared with us. We will miss seeing him running in for something that he needed quickly, only to run back home to make that repair. He had so many talents, but his best one was loving his family and living life to it fullest.
    We will keep you all in our prayers.

    I am terribly sorry to hear of this news. My hope is that God grants you the inner strength to make it through the coming days remembering each smile and joyous time you each spent with Garry. May God give you peace knowing that Garry is in Heaven protecting each of you from this point on, for what ever the reason for his passing may be, though we all know it was far too soon for him to leave this earth. I was granted a couple times to meet him in person though heard talk of him often from Andy and know of his true Greatness and wonderful Character. Carry on knowing that this goodness will carry on through the Williams family as all I have come to meet and know are Good! God Bless you ALL. R.I.P. Garry. <3

    Dear Pam and Family, Although, I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you, I heard so much about all of you from Garry over the many years we worked together. It was apparent to anyone who worked with Garry how much he loved his family and what a proud husband and father he was. We were all touched by Garry’s kindness and deeply saddened by his passing. May his lasting memories give you comfort in this time of loss. You are in our prayers.

  13. Deborah Ayers says:

    Pam, Brittany, Ashley, Christina, Aunt Peggy, Uncle Arthur, Doug, Terry, Andy and your families:
    Tears fill my eyes as I write this. Words cannot express my sympathies for the grief you are experiencing. I know you all are shocked and saddened by Gary’s sudden passing. He was a dear cousin and I will fondly hold onto the memories of our annual visits to Covington each summer as a kid. They were fun times in the mountains and great memories for this girl from the plains. And I will cherish the memories of the visit to Oklahoma that your family made with grandma in 1977 where you got to experience a bit of Texas and Oklahoma. I remember Garry and several others learning to water ski on our boat adventures at Lake Texoma.

    Living so far apart the visits subsided as an adult. I am thankful that we got to spend some time together during our April 2002 visit when Mom, Dad and I attended the Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. I found photos we took at several monuments and museums of Garry, Pam, the girls, Arthur and Peggy. The last time I saw Garry was November 2006 when he so graciously picked me up at Dulles Airport and drove me to Peggy and Arthur’s house for Thanksgiving. He was a funny, kind and thoughtful cousin who loved his family. I wish I could be with all of you at today’s service to express my condolences in person and share the memories with you. I am sending much love, hugs and prayers from Texas. I will miss you and love you dear cousin, rest in peace.

  14. Melinda, Rylan and Destiney Scott says:

    Pam and girls, Aunt Peggy, Uncle Arthur, Andy, Terry, Doug and all family: As I sat and read about Garry’s passing in disbelief with tears down my cheeks, I started to smile thinking about the summers we got to spend visiting when we were growing up. We had so much fun when we were in Virginia and when you were all here in Oklahoma. We made a lot of memories that I will treasure forever. I cannot believe I have lost a precious cousin so suddenly at such a young age. I cannot imagine how you all feel at this time. I will remember the memories and happy times we all spent together. I will continue praying for you all daily. Love to you all!! Love you always cousin Garry!!

  15. Sonia Hubbard Lamb says:

    Dear Peggy, Arthur, Dougy, Andy, and Terry,
    Words can not express the sorrow and pain I feel for you for the loss of your son/brother Garry. Every bit of my heart goes out to you during this most difficult time. Life does not make sense losing someone so young…..I will continue to keep you all in my prayers….May God help you during this time….
    Deepest Sympathy,
    Sonia

  16. Dad & Mother Williams ( Art & Peg) says:

    We have no words to say because we have not excepted that one of our precious children has passed to the other side.
    Thank God one day years ago Garry accepted Christ as his Lord and he has passed from “death” to “Life Eternal”.
    Pam, you became the love of his life and we appreciate all that you did while married to Garry. He only had eyes and thoughts for you. But never let it be said he did not love Ashley, Brittany and Christina. And is one son (four-legged Max).
    We had a wonderful Christmas together all four children were home and never in our wildest dreams would we know that would be his last.

    We will be with you one day but until then you will “Forever be in our Hearts”. Dad & Mother
