My sincere condolences go out to Me Gary's entire family and all of his loving, close friends. I am SO PROUD and very thankful to have had an opportunity to have him as a friend in my life. I INSTANTLY connected and bonded with him when I 1st met him. This man was probably the KINDEST, most genuine, loyal/honest, loving man that God placed in this world for us. I'm sure he's touched the lives of MANY MANY people in his years with us. He will be missed MORE THAN he could ever imagine. He was so humble, he prob has NO clue how important he was to so many people. This man was admired and loved by so many, me included! I know we will eventually meet again when my day comes to leave this earth. I love & admire u, Mr. Gary! and always will

Jody, Bubba, Mikey , entire family

I was unable to attend the service for your father but Regina was there to express our feelings for your loss. Jody, you know me history has the answers. George Patton once said it was wrong to mourn the loss of such nen but that we should thank God that such men lived. That is certainly a great description and good advice for remembering your father. He was a great friend to all and a proud ISTROUMA INDIAN. Love ya'll coach Almond

Great loss. It was a pleasure to have been able to call him a friend. He never met a person he didn't know (the kind of person who made you feel as if you knew him the very first time you met him).

What sad news. Our hearts are breaking for the Plauche' Family. Gary, once told Doodle & I that we radiated happiness. It was you, Dear Friend. We met most of your family. Bubba played music for our 4th of July celebrations on False River. That smile of yours will be forever remembered. Condolences from the Iverstine Family. We will surely miss you, always. Doodle & Connie.

Gary and his brother Jeff and I go back along way. Our friendship started at Istrouma High. The entire Plauche' Family always made everyone feel like family. When Gary or Jeff walked in the room the entire room got brighter I was fortunate to work in the old Lady of the Lake Pathology Department with both of them. If either we're enjoying a sandwich they would always ask you to share it with them. That is the way they were taught. Two of the most caring men I have ever met. The entire community applauded Gary for the action he took long ago. Anyone who loves their children as Gary did truly understands his actions on that day long ago.Heaven just got brighter today. God bless the entire Plauche' Family in their loss.
