Just found out Gary Church was t- boned by a car in Arizona and did not make it. Really sad. I played with him through our mutual friend Rice Honeywell in Vancouver. Rice will be devastated as he spent winters in Arizona playing with Gary and his wife Cheryl, and were good friends over many years.  Gary would play cornet/jazz with us but he played many instruments and styles. He toured with Merle Haggard and Mel Tillis and many others of course.

Gary was an all round musician and pleasant guy. He co- wrote 'I always get lucky with you'. He was a member of 'The Strangers'.

I saw an interview with Haggard once, and he said he would be happiest being a guitar playing sideman.
