I met Cary in 1957 and his wonderful family, Toby, Thelma, Lark and Suzy. Cary enjoyed making and directing 8mm movies. He would come out to our farm and film, cowboy, airplane, misc. whatever he thought exciting and fun.
We graduated from Central High School, 1960. We attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.
Cary and I talked on the phone many times about the houses he and Linda were building. He always told me how proud and outstanding his kids were in their lives.
Our class reunions were great, especially the 50th!
Could listen for hours to Cary's exciting experiences meeting real cowboys of the west, movie stars and buying old movies. I always said he could have been better
... than Ted Turner.
Charisma, handsome, family man, successful businessman and loyal friend. We think about Cary with love in our hearts today, but that is nothing new. Now all we have are memories and Cary's picture in a frame. His memory and friendship is our keepsake with which we'll never part. God has him in his keeping and we have in our heart.
"Happy Trails" Special Friend. Pat.
