Gary, his brother Larry, and his father Dale were all great friends and wonderful workers in our community.  We had a very active Boy Scout Troop 34 that met at Troub Church on Cottage Ave.  The Eby's were hard workers in scouts and very much an inspiration to the other scouts.  Gary was a big strong handsome guy but was as gentle as a lamb.  I regret the fact that we lost touch after high school and I miss you and your dad terribly.  Chuck Williams
