Gary is one of my Truly Great Friends. I've known Gary since we both attended Belt Line Jr High in the 8th grade, in the RHS building  Gary grew up across the street from Dover Elementary School on Colfax Circle. I lived on Spring Valley and met him walking home from school. "We used to do that in those days."  Gary played on the Richardson City football teams until after school work got in the way  After graduation Gary married Sharon, from RHS 1968, and joined the US Army  Serving as a medic at Ft Riley, Kansas, moving back to Richardson after his tour of duty.  Amy, their 1st daughter, and My God Daughter arrived, so they purchased their home in the area North of Arapaho and Waterview  I would always stop in and see them both when back in Dallas  Gary was extremely proud of his three daughters, but more so when his Grandchildren started arriving. His great enjoyment was taking the Grandchildren on summer vacation trips. Their last was tubing down the Frio River in the Texas Hill Country. Knowing the best place to eat was his specialty, and particularly  Texas BarBQ.  He had been sick for almost 1 year. He quietly went to sleep on July 20, 2017.  I will dearly miss my friend of 52 years  God Bless Gary Kieth Sumner. RHS '69er.
