Pro Release Founder and Friend Gary Todd Passes

 Gary was a client and friend. I have so many good memories of Gary, always laughing, always engaged and always a bit larger than life. He was a dutiful husband to wife Carrie and doting father to son Jeremy. Gary lived life to the fullest and made everyone around him smile. I cherish the time I spent with him and the memories will always be with me. God Bless you wildman, heaven will never again be the same with you and your wonderful personality lighting the sky.

From everyone at who knew Gary and from me, I wish the family love and strength and offer our most sincere condolences. I know your hearts are heavy and that nothing anyone can say or do will fill the tremendous void left by Gary’s passing.   Know though that he is loved and will forever be in our hearts.  Rich Walton
