To the family, you don't know me but I knew Mr. Lockard as my Science teacher at Dublin Middle School. It's hard to believe that's been over 25 years ago but I can remember him like it was yesterday. He was such a great teacher and an even better friend. He always encouraged me and inspired me to work hard. I'll never forget his warm smile and contagious laugh. I remember once he gave me his keys and asked me to go get something for him out of his truck after class. He smiled and said, "I wouldn't trust just any kid with my keys." My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Praise God for the HOPE we have in Christ. Sincerely, Rev. Marcus Harrison

Marian,
I am so sorry to hear about Gary's passing. I've known him all my life because he and I have a mutual cousin, Donnie Smith. Donnie's mother was my Aunt Margaret, Jenny's sister. You also taught my geometry class at DHS. Sending prayers, love and hugs.
