Gary V (Gary Vacek)

Recommended Posts




GaryV was a huge friend of the board who attended many of our G2G's. He was a kind, gentle man, whose advice helped guide the early years of this message board. He passed away on Sept. 3, 2008 and will always be sorely missed by those who knew him. He had a small fishing website which continues to live on.


His motto was "If life was simply a bowl of cherries we would probably start looking for the pits, enjoy life, treasure the good times, keep the good memories with you, and whenever possible live your life to the fullest. "
