My prayers and condolences to his family at this difficult time. I got to know Boogie about 30 years ago when I lived in Mt. Vernon, loved his laugh and sense of humor. I have great memories of good times with a great guy.

I am sorry to hear of Gary's passing. We shared good times in high school. We spent many hours playing cards at Joe's. My thoughts are with all of you.

You have our sympathy in the death of beloved Gary Schoenfelder. He was a good man and always made his monthly payments to us quite promptly. May the memories of your life with him, bring you peace and comfort all these days.

I hadn't seen Gary in many years, but back in the 80s we had a large group of friends in Mt. Vernon, Gary included. I was so sorry to hear of his death. Peace too the family. God bless.

We were good friends many years ago, I have not seen him in more than thirty years. In just the last week or so he has been in my thoughts. I was surprised to see his obit. May he rest easy.
