Gary was our mailman on Alicia Trail in Stow for quite a few years. One time we got into a discussion about Bob Dylan so long that the our neighbor came out next door because she wanted her mail! Gary & I laughed! A gentle quite spoken gentleman. Need more like him! Lois Schlademan

We were so sorry to hear of Garys passing. He was much more than our mail carrier and we considered him a friend we could count on seeing every day for some brief conversation. Deepest sympathies.

I saw this name and couldn't believe I recognized it. I checked my memory by looking in my basic training yearbook. I served with Gary in Basic Training July 1968. My condolences to family.

To the family and loved ones of Gary Robidoux:
A friend from Cuyahoga Falls called and informed me of Gary's death. I am so sorry to learn of this. I went to school with Gary from middle school through high school. We remained friends and wrote each other while he was in Vietnam and reconnected when he returned. Gary was my first love and I have such fond memories of our years together.
My sincere condolences to you all.
