Below are some comments from people that knew and worked with Gary:

Troy Spady: Gary Messick played the Italian Villa well as some of our private parties...a great talent and a great guy.

Rod Varney: I was lucky enough to play with Gary that last few years that he was alive...he was a great talent/entertainer...and one of nicest human beings I've ever had the pleasure to have known. Miss his great voice and humor.

Gary Richards: When I worked at Gadsby's in Salinas, he would come in, tell jokes...ask about you and your family...your gigs...anything....a truly great guy.

Sammy Dee: Gary also opened his own music store on N. Main St. in Salinas, but I just don't think it was a good location and he closed it. He was always willing to try and work hard.

Marilyn Victorine Parr: He also owned the Choclate Dipper in Salinas with his wife Molly until his death. Great Guy and wonderful person.
