  5. Dear Mrs. Moger and family, We are very sad for your loss. We know how much Mr. Moger meant to Gary and you and the whole family. Gary is like a brother to Carl and I – part of our family. May the Lord grant you an extra portion of mercy and kindness and give you strength and grace during this difficult time. You will all be in our prayers. Love in Christ, Carl & Robbie Davis

  6. Tom, It’s tough losing a loved one, I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I pray you find comfort in out Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Pearlie

  7. Although I never had the privilege of meeting Mr. Moger, his love, care, and teaching of his Son, Pastor Gary, literally shines through Pastor Gary’s face which beams with his humble, sweet love for his Dad and our Lord, Jesus Christ. Such a Son simply had to have had a wonderful Father who will be greatly missed, but for whom we will all rejoice that he is now free from pain in his new body at home in heaven with our Lord.

  8. Dear Linda and family, I had the great privilege of knowing Gary for 30 years in our work for the Navy. I got to know him first as a great programmer and analyst, and then as a man of deep devotion to God and family, and next as a talented musician who shared a love of Bluegrass with me. Gary was simply very good at every thing he put his hand to, and he made devotion to God a most manly and admirable practice. My own life was greatly blessed by knowing Gary. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Sincerely, Pat Reddan

  9. Dear Linda and family, I was blessed to work with Gary for 20 years. He was a friend and mentor. He was like a walking reference manual, both for technology and for the Bible. I will greatly miss our conversations, whether they were technical (either injecting an idea or being a sounding board), or regarding scripture. Hold fast to the joy in knowing we will see him again when Jesus returns. May God continue to bless you and give you peace. Frank

  10. Dear Linda and family, Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one. I was fortunate to have known and worked with Gary for over 35 years ago during which time we became very good friends. We both were fortunate to have jobs we liked and to work with a group of outstanding people throughout our careers. He was truly an expert in the field of Navy communications and some of the systems he helped develop are still being used today to support the Navy fleet while they are operating at sea. One of the things I will miss most is our lunch outings that would provide an enjoyable break away from the office. After I retired, Gary and I continued to meet for lunch every few months or so to catch up. But while work was important to him, he made it clear that his priority was his family and his Christian faith which is what I admired most about him. I will never forget Gary and will cherish the many memories that I have of him. Bruce

  12. I have great memories of riding up into the VA mountains several years ago with my daughter and my Pastor Gary Moger to hear his dad Gary play his unique style of banjo with a bunch of bluegrass pickers.
