My prayers and sympathy to Gary's family. I remember Gary fondly as the little brother of my best friend Paul. Gary always had a smile on his face and that is how all will remember him. Forever in our hearts, and I know memories of him and his smile will get the family through the days ahead. Much Love xo

To the Sackfield family and friends. It was a privilege to work with Gary for so many years at GM Oshawa. I was in facilities engineering and Gary in facilities maintenance. He had strong electrical safety values. Always great discussions and suggestions shared. Great sense of humour, much wisdom. I remember in 2000 when he helped me move furniture to our new house. I was so saddened, and he will always be remembered. I am glad we had time to share a talk and a beer in December last. Our condolences, Gary and Nancy Gazo
