    I knew Cary. He was a good man who did not deserve in some alley with so much life in front of him. He loved his job and his family. Evrything he did, he did for them. God bless him and His family…

    My oldest son is very good friends with his son Tyler, and they have gone to school together since they were in 1st grade. I know Donna from volunteering at the school, and I just can’t believe this happened to their family. God bless Donna and the kids, and my justice be handed down to whomever committed this horrific crime.

    I knew Cary since we were 14 yrs old. He was a good man and good friend. He honestly did not deserve someone to take his life and believe that they will find out who murdered him. I hope the police don’t stop investigating this crime. Justice should be served!!! He had a beautiful family that he took pride in and loved many friends. He would help anyone out in a minute. He was a beautiful person and had a HEART OF GOLD. My thoughts go out to his Mom and Dad, Patti and his children who will forever miss him along with many many friends.
