Gary would go on to work for and with close friend, Richard, at Refrigerator City in Galloway, NJ., where the two would work side by side for the better part of two and a half decades.

They bonded over shared interests, such as car shows, where they had a fondness for muscle cars, and breakfast at Gilchrist. He also loved movies, particularly westerns, "Dracula" films and mob movies rounded out his favorites. He was also an avid fan of Elvis Presley.
