Gary was born in Oklahoma City, growing up and graduating from Del City High School in 1964. He served proudly in the U.S. Marine Corps, 1965-1967. He then began his long career in the Transportation/ Trucking field. He drove for American Farmlines and spent 17 years with TG&Y in Edmond as a driver and then as Transportation Director.

He proudly finished his career spending 14 happy years as Fleet Manager at Gemini Coatings in El Reno, retiring in July of 2012. With his wonderful sense of humor, caring nature and kind ways, he was a positive influence on all those around him. Gary loved his wife and family above all else and would do anything for them. He was a constant source of strength, wisdom and advice for those of us that needed it.
