AJeff -- this guys wife left him. Jeff skip town owing Gary money. Gary was just glad to get him out! Jeff is a nut case and will most likely never take the stand. He made this up as he went. I'm not even sure if anyone knows where he is.
BI look to Ed as a grandfather. The man died last year. Ed's health was so poor he couldn't pick a chair up if he wanted to. I rented a trailer from Ed, behind Ed's house for 2 years. I was 19-20 years old. Ed quite building dog houses for Lyles years ago because of his health and his wife. Ed cut his fingers off twice and she said that's it. "I loved the man"
CI sometimes believe Gary retired more because Rose was pushing him to. She wanted to move to the beach. She takes "a lot" of drugs for back problem. I use to go pick her medicine up "all the time." She eats pills like chicken feed. Gary may have retired but he's still working. He'll never stop, he's a second father to me.
DI spent hours remodeling the first bedroom. cherry rail, paint, etc. I spent even more time refinishing the furniture for the room. I stripped and pickled it.
EI called him between 7 or 8 o'clock and he wanted the bed out of his way. Gary was giving it to me if I recall but it wasn't mine.
FHe didn't describe it correctly.
GNever happened. He met me in front of the house and already had the matress in the yard
*This page is a waste of time. He was a bum and a headache.
MONEY AND THAT HE NEEDED MONEY BADLY, NOW.
JEFF SAID THAT ON THE NEXT DAY AFTER PATRICIAS DEATH THAT HE CALLED LYLES BUILDING MATERIAL, 100CT95, AROUND 0930-1000 HRS AND GARY ANSWERED THE PHONE AND HE SPOKE WITH GARY AND TOLD HIM TO TELL HIM THAT IT WASN'T TRUE WHAT HE HAD HEARD ABOUT PATRICIA AND GARY TOLD HIM THAT IT WAS TRUE AND TOLD HIM THAT HE WASN'T IN TOWN WHEN IT HAPPENED, BUT JEFF SAID HE COULD HAVE SWORN THAT HE SAW GARYS TRUCK COMMING ONTO THE RAMP ON HWY 62 IN THE EVENING OF 09OCT95 AT ABOUT 1930 HRS. AND WOULD HAVE BEEN COMMING FROM PLEASANT GARDEN SOUTH ON HWY421.
