Almost made it to the service, but my four year old got carsick in Catawissa. So sorry we didn't get there to say goodbye. Gary was a really great guy. I had the pleasure of working with him at Walmart for many years. He will be remembered fondly and often.

Our sincerest and deepest sympathies to the Peak family.
We did not have the pleasure of knowing Gary, but know his son Brandon in Florida.
Brandon is an impressive young man and that is a great testament to his Father.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Gary and I were best friends growing up 1965-1973. He and his family lived across the street in Royersford. During those years we did everything together including fishing, riding bicycles, camping out, building forts in the woods and shooting off model rockets. We later shared the same interest in motorcycles. On many Saturdays we would take the train from Royersford to Pottstown to visit all the Motorcycle shops. Then eat at our favorite pizza place. We both joined the Boy Scouts together.
Gary moved away to Bloomsburg in 1973 and I didn't hear from him again until a few short years ago when we found each other on Facebook. We had long phone conversations about the good old days. He spoke a great deal about his family and I could tell he was very happy.
Gary was a good friend and I will miss him. I know we'll ride again one day. Godspeed my friend.
