Mr. Gurney was one of the iconic men of my life growing up. He was always gentle, humble, and considerate. As I grew up, he was just a joy to sit down with and enjoy conversations. Our family honors his memory and that of a live well lived. Simply put, he was just one great guy. Lee, Carol, Joseph, and Amelia
