Gary Church - Rest In Peace

Gary Church - Rest In Peace

Gary Church former member of the Statesider band passed away February 19, 2018 from injuries sustained in a car wreck.

Gary was an accomplished musician playing trumpet and trombone for Mel for several years along with Merle Haggard, previously.  Gary is remembered for his wit and loving spirit. If he was your knew it.  He was loyal, caring  and loving.

Thank you Gary for great memories, laughter and music - always music. The Tillis family send peace and prayers to Eddie, and longtime partner - Cheryl Thurston.  Return to the music and it will help with the tears.
