    I’m so sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. He was so grounded in his faith that there is no doubt where he is now. I never met Gary but saw his posts on fb.
    I am Frank McIntyre’s wife, Julie. He is a cousin of the McIntyres in Fordsville. Years ago I had met his sister Glona. Prayers for the family.

    Prayers & thoughts to y’all! I know Tyler thought very highly of Mr Caudill. And if he was able he’d tell y’all himself. God keep and bless you all! From the Ramsey Family

    I knew Gary from out time in the US Air Force and with Lockheed. I considered him a good friend.. He will be missed, and our condolences go out to the family.

    Gary always enjoyed giving this scrawny Airman a hard time but he taught me a lot before he got out. Who would have thought many years later he would remember that scrawny Airman buying spinner baits for his grandson in Beebe . Honored to have served with him, blessed by his witness.
