Gary Loved and lived his life to the fullest extent. He treasured his children and family more than anything. He was a terrific father to his children and loved them more than life itself. Gary had the heart of a saint, he would give the shirt off of his back to anyone in need and always had a shoulder to lean on. He was kind-hearted, outgoing, lovingly stubborn, focused and determined in anything he did. He loved the beach, camping, drawing and sketching but most importantly spending time with his children and family. Being a hard worker was also very important to him. Gary made a positive impact to anyone that came into his life. He could light up any room that he walked in. He was always the funniest person around and could make you laugh and smile just when you needed it. He had a way with words. Gary was a caring, loving,
compassionate father, son, brother and uncle who was strong in his faith and was prepared to meet his Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. Gary will be deeply missed and another Angel has gained his wings.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
