Gary was my prompter after each degree. I never forgot the ritual, he was a great friend. I left Doric when it became Composite lodge. We stayed in touch over almost 50 years. Gary once told me a story about hitler’s obsession with the Masons. hitler could never figure out where you first made a Mason? RIP Brother Gary. Condolences to Krista and the family.
