He was a truck driver most of his life and retired from Walmart as a truck driver last year on his birthday when he turned 70. Three months into retirement, Cancer was revealed.
Gary loved life, people, his little dog, Mac, cooking, eating, fishing, hunting, flying his airplane, playing his guitar and singing, (he had a beautiful voice), helping people, and joking around. He was our Santa Clause at Christmas and was very generous with his gifts all through the year. Gary had many friends and people who loved him. He will be missed.
