He graduated from Pittsfield High School and later Berkshire Community College with an associate degree in Engineering. He went on to get a BA from Purdue University in mechanical engineering. He worked for International Harvester, then Eastman Kodak Company for over 20 years. Gary's humor and love for his children carried him through to the end of his journey on earth.

He was married to Pamela J (Oberlin) Rochelo in Fort Wayne, IN Oct. 24, 1981, and they had celebrated their 30th Wedding Anniversary.
