To Gary’s family, Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage and strength to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. Gary was a shining light in this world. He will be missed. Until we meet again, keep that heavenly choir going! Bless all Gary’s family and friends.
God be with you ’til we meet again
By His counsel’s guide uphold you
With His sheep securely fold you
God be with you ’til we meet again
I still remember Gary’s solo in about 1975 at the FIrst United Meth Church in Taylorvllle. It was “To God Be The GLory” Gary certainly lived out that song. I feel so honored to have been a part of Gary’s early life.
Blessings to you and your family as you traverse those hard times. Your “fans” continue to lift you up in the coming days.
We, Tom, Bettie, Brady and Trudy Corn, we’re so blessed by knowing Gary when we were all at FUMC in Roswell, NM. Gary was the song leader of the church choir, but also of Heaven Connexion, the youth choir which Brady and Trudy were part of in their High School years. The summers were youth Choir trips to different parts of the country to perform Godspell, Jesus Christ Superstar, etc. Bettie was able to go along and be a sponsor. Gary was always a positive influence on our kids with his love for the Lord and his sense of humor. He sponsored Bettie on the Walk to Emmaus! Gary sang at Trudy’s wedding in 1996! Wonderful memories! Thank you Lord for the blessing of knowing Gary Showalter!
God be with the family and Sonia as you learn to live without Gary. Prayers for your comfort.
All love and sympathy to you and your family. He will be so missed by all who knew him. Wishes and prayers to you, Sonia, for the strength required to go forward after the beautiful life you and Gary shared.
Peace be with the family and friends of such a caring man.
On behalf of the members (fans) of the
Florida Sewing Sew-ciety.
I want you to know how wonderful you were to me, you walked me through any computer problems I had while sewing out your wife’s design or forgetting my password. You showed me how to store my thread and make it so much easier to keep track of the colors I had! Your amazing Gary and I still appreciate everything you did for me! May Angels bless you and your family with your passing, most of all whisper in their ear because I know they’ll be missing you!
We have many pleasant memories of Gary: leading the choir, singing in the choir, playing with the Brass, singing solos, and just always making himself useful and pleasant. Our condolences to his wife, children, extended family, and church family and friends. His presence was felt, and it will be missed.

May the good Lord wrap his loving and healing arms around you and your family during this most difficult time. Know how much Gary loved you and hold those thoughts close to your heart each and every day until you meet again on the other side. Until then, stay strong !
Heaven’s choir just gained a beautiful voice and an even more beautiful spirit.
Gary was one of the most positive persons we’ve ever met.
God’s blessings and comfort to Sonia, his children and extended family.
