Born to William and Joan (Porte) Delong in Brooklin then moving to Acton. Although Gary was predeceased in death by his grandparents, Rita and Roy Delong (Brooklin), father William (Brooklin), mother Joan Porte Charles (Acton), father-in-law Charles Hamer (Brooklin), sister Patricia (Acton) and brother David (Brooklin), saddened hearts left behind are sisters Audra (Daryl) and Nicole (Rick), Mother-in-law Marie Hamer, in-laws Doug Andrews and Karen Delong, Jane (Bob) Young, Marilyn Hamer (Owen), Brian, Ed (Fran) Hamer.
