Gary George Boero, D.D.S. "THIS LIFE IS NOT A DRESS REHEARSAL" Passed away suddenly on Thanksgiving Day at his home in Sleepy Hollow. Born on March 5, 1939, in San Francisco, CA, to Dr. Edward Boero and Wanda Kandra Boero, both deceased. At the age of six, Gary moved with his family to Sleepy Hollow. He grew up riding horses through the hills around their home, a childhood many would dream about. Gary was a born leader and attracted people to him from a young age. All the neighborhood kids would hang out at the Boero house, where Gary would organize the day's activities. Gary went through the public schools and graduated from Drake High School in 1957. While there, he played football and served as student body president. During this time, he was active in the Boy Scouts and obtained the rank of Eagle Scout. He continued working with the Boy Scouts for many years serving on the Executive Council. After high school, Gary attended college at San Jose State and graduated in 1961. He then attended dental school at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in San Francisco, completing his degree in 1965. He joined the family dental practice in San Rafael where he worked up until the day he died. Dr. Gary joined the San Rafael Rotary in the 1960's where he was a lifelong member. He also served on the Board of the Marin Humane Society for several years. His life passion for horses led him to follow his dad in joining the Sonoma County Trailblazers/Marin Camp in 1967. He served as president of that organization in 1981/82. He remained active in the Trailblazers and the Reno Sierra Riders. He rode weekly in West Marin on Thursdays and Sundays for 25 years with the late Mario Ghilotti, Cowboy Pat McNeil, and Mike Smith. Gary has been described as a true Renaissance man. He pursued many interests during his life. He was an Italian chef, a wine connoisseur, a duck hunter, a sculptor in bronze, copper, and garden sculptures, a vintage race car driver, bonsai enthusiast, a jewelry maker, a machinist, Porsche admirer, an animal lover from dogs and horses to exotic lizards and tortoises. Gary enjoyed life to the fullest. He was loved by his family, friends, and patients, whom he delighted in entertaining. He was always ready to help a friend in need, always warmed hearts with his big smile, and always had a good time. He will be sorely missed by so many. Gary is survived by his beloved wife Boo Boero and her two sons Ryan (Lindsay) Wilson and Jason (Sonia) Wilson, his daughter Cristy Boero Favell, two brothers Dr. Roger (Emagene) Boero and Dr. Mark (Jo) Boero, his nieces Mollie Boero, Dr. Sally Boero, Sophia Kurnik and Amy Harmon and eight great nieces and nephews, his granddaughter, Piper Wilson, and two grandsons Zephyr and Nicco Favell, A celebration of Gary's life will be held Saturday, December 7 at 11:00 AM at Peacock Gap Country Club.
