I was very saddened to hear the news of Cary's passing. I knew Cary through swimming and visiting with him at the pool. He was one of the finest, most caring sweetest people I have ever know. His example of how to life to its fullest is one we should all follow. My deepest sympathy to his family. We will miss him-and look forward to seeing him on the other side.
Rest in peace my friend.

Cary was the most generous, gracious, gentle and caring person with the most positive attitude. He loved giving to others and making their lives joyful. I am so thankful and feel very blessed to have had him in my life. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Love you Cary and thank you for precious memories.

When we lose a man like Cary Magness we lose a part of our selves, but that part goes along with him to our own final destination. It's comforting to know that he will be there to welcome us.
The greatest honor we can do him is to follow his example of love, compassion, generosity, and understanding.

The 1950 Class of Farwell High School friends would like to wish Cary Joe a wonderful journey to his new home. We were all close friends at that time and have continued to check in on one another through the years.
We are sorry for the sadness Cary's Family must be feeling now. He was the kindest fellow we knew.
