Gary you will forever be in my thoughts. Gary was a person that would do anything for you, he would go around the neighborhood after a snow storm and plow peoples drive ways whether he knew you or not and never took a cent from anyone. You will be missed ❤️

Very sorry for your loss. My children delivered the newspaper to the house for many years. When we found out he was a horse dentist, we knew how much of a unique person he was. My kids didn't believe it, and the work he did with the Lions Club is special. East Bridgewater has lost a great man. Our condolences to the family.

It is impossible to put into words how much Gary, Sr. meant to me and how much he did for me and my horses over the past 30 plus years. He always had a kind word especially when I was starting my business (Victory Stables, Inc.). I learned something from him every time he would visit and we swapped Aruba stories for many years since we both loved the Island. I will never forget his generously, larger than life personality and unmatched work ethic. I am praying for his Family during this difficult time. I will always remember the “thought for the day” on his answering machine.

My earliest memories camping on the beach and gathering sand dollars, although I don’t remember what beach it was. We reconnected many many years later when your son met his wife. It was wonderful to make that connection after all those years. It was fabulous you were able to share stories of my father with me. I know you will be met by loved ones gone, including my father. Thank you for the memories. I am sorry I will be out of town but please know you are all thought of. ❤️ Love and Condolences to all Michelle and family

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family....Gary is leaving this world a better place because he loved and cared for people. We will always remember the kind, warm welcome Gary and Rosemary gave us on that Christmas Eve 30 years ago, when Gaye insisted that I must come, and bring my family to their annual open house! We had just started working together at Dr Low’s office only a few months before and I almost didn’t go, worried that we would be intruding. As soon as we arrived my worries vanished as the amazing, kind and lively Saccocia family welcomed us with hugs, and drinks, and laughter, and food, and most of all Love! Gary will be remembered and missed by many because he loved so many...❣️

Kimberly Barry of Northfield, MA wrote:

Gary was part of my childhood. I knew him through his equine dentistry business when we saw him twice a year for many years in a row. He was always laughing and smiling and even the craziest horses just let him do what he needed to do with little trouble. He had a way with people and horses alike. I will always remember him with fondness. My heart goes out to his family on the loss of a great man.

Miriam Tolliver wrote:

Gary was one of my favorite morning members at the ymca. We would chit chat sometimes for over an hour about family, horses and more family. He was so proud of all of you. He was incredibly proud of Rosemary for all the work she has done with children and especially her work as a reading specialist. We would often speak about one of the grandsons who, like my son, plays at Battleground. We loved talking about their Dungeons and Dragons and MTG games and how intelligent one has to be to play these games but also how good hearted they are. I always hope that my husband lights up the way Gary did whenever we talked about family.

Gary, clearly, touched the hearts of so many. Twenty five plus years ago Gary made a bet that if I could give him the previous year’s list of dental work for each horse at Dana Hall he would forever buy lunch for our staff Well, I had it! So twice a year for all these years Gary bought us lunch! When Woodridge Farm came into the picture(18 years ago) he would tell that story and buy lunch there too!! A man of his word! We were the lucky ones- he had the best stories! We will all miss your contagious smile. Heaven is lucky to have you!!

Our families grew up together long ago back when we were playing hockey, soccer, horseback riding, sleepovers and even an afternoon out in a field bombing around on an old snowmobile.

My husband and I met Gary because our daughter met his grandson. They have a friendship that is as true as can be. We are so grateful that our daughter has that blessing in her life. We know that a very big part of that is because of the lessons that Gary taught to his family. Gary and Rosemary's kindness and generosity have been a gift to all who have known them on any level. Gary's graciousness and his ever present smile will not be forgotten.
