Gary Lee FarleyPosted on 12/12/15 - by Roberta Birdie Elder HouchenGary was my brother Bob's best friend. They hunted together as junior and senior in the wood behind our home. One day they went off to hunt with our dog Kelly, a blue tip pointer and they thought they shot the Kelly. They carried her back home only to find and gave her to me. They pointed out where the injury was and I informed them as I laughed that her puppies needed these and they didn't shoot Kelly. We laughed and had a beer.MORE
Gary was well loved by many and is missed. Every year between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I remember him. Rest in peace. I know you are up there hunting with Bob and Kelly
A Real ManPosted on 3/4/14 - by Rick HershmanAn American, a Patriot, a Soldier. A man of discipline, a man of honesty, a man who could always be depended on. A man of compassion. The type of man we do not have enough of these days.MORE
How do I know these things of him? I served with him in that terrible war. I was with him that terrible night we lost him.
Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/26/13 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear SP4 Gary Lee Farley, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
