Gary Paul Ferrante Sr. Obituary
Gary Paul Ferrante Sr., 60, of Wilmington, passed away on April 8, 2017 with his family beside him.

Gary was born in Philadelphia, Pa. on June 25 1956 and didn't allow any limitations to dictate his path in life. He lived with self determination regardless of challenges and obstacles. Most evident is how he lived 2 1/2 years longer than a 4- to 6-month timeframe that he was given when diagnosed with lung cancer. Gary was a steel worker from a young teenager, and due to his work ethic and dedication to excellence, he held many positions until he started his own business, Panache' Mechanical, LLC.

Gary enjoyed his life to the fullest by riding his Harley Davidson, tinkering with his classic cars, listening to blues music and doing crossword puzzles. He also greatly enjoyed reading, was always sharp dressed and collected watches. He was blessed to have many friends over the years and truly enjoyed their company.

His unparalleled pleasure, though, was being in the midst of his children, Christine Lemanski (Steve), Angie Stevens (Craig), Gary and Bianca (fiancé Mike), and his grandchildren Kessy, Reign and Madison. He was constantly beaming when he was around them, as his adoration for each was obvious. Gary's humor, quick wit, devotion and generosity will be missed by many. His footprint though will remain ingrained.

A memorial service will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. May 12, at Charles P. Arcaro Funeral Home Lancaster Ave. Wilmington. Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Gary's memory to Disabled Veterans National Foundation, 4601 Forbes Blvd., Suite 130, Lanham, MD 20706.
