We know he is joyfully reunited with his father, who died when Gary was only 13, and his son Allen, who died at age 6.

Dad was always happiest when surrounded by family. Dad, you are our hero and inspiration of what dedication and hard work can do. You have shown us that if we are determined to improve ourselves, we can. We love you and look forward to seeing you again. We are glad we came to your house. We express our greatest thanks to Melanie, his hospice nurse, for her excellent care during this challenging time. Thank you for helping us make this difficult transition.

Gigounas, Argie - Salt Lake City  
Argie Gigounas passed away on August 26, 2015, in Newport Beach, CA, at the age of 100. She was the inspirational matriarch of her devoted family, and a cherished member of the Greek Orthodox Church and community. Argie was born August 7, 1915, in rural Crete, to Paul and Olympia Giannetakis. She married George Gigounas and emigrated to Helper, Utah in 1929. Together they had two children, John and Elaine, before relocating to Salt Lake City. Although Argie left Greece as a teenager with only a Second Grade education. She was a brilliant woman with an indefatigable appetite for learning. In Utah, she sat quietly behind the rows of children in her son's elementary school class for a year to learn English, then worked three jobs so that her children could attend college. Argie was widowed in 1975 and never remarried. She traveled all over Europe and to the former Soviet Union, Africa, China, Iran, Israel, Panama, and Turkey. She was a voracious reader, from The Enquirer to The Economist, a provocative conversationalist and keen observer of people. She devoted her life to a global education, and to her children and grandchildren, with whom she shared her appreciation for nature, music, architecture, dance and history. Argie was a tremendous gardener and cook. She planted vegetables and knew precisely when to pick them. She loved going to Roger's Gardens in Corona del Mar, to walk the landscaped grounds and look at the flowers. Argie was finicky but never fickle, picky but not without humor, and enormously generous and kind. She grasped the hands of dear ones and squeezed tightly. She is survived by her daughter, Elaine Camaras (Tykye); granddaughter, Elena Abramson (Joe); grandson, Dean (Nicole) and their son Ty, daughter-in-law, Ann Gigounas; grandson, John Ames Gigounas (Danica); grandson, George Gigounas (Laura) and their children, Jocelyn, John and Michael; granddaughter Ellen DeBruin (Dan) with and their son, Tobias. She is also survived by her brothers, Strate Giannetakis (Georgia) and Emmanuel Giannetakis (Farah); sister-in-law, Helen Giannetakis and many nieces and nephews. Argie is predeceased by her sisters, Katina and Eleni; her brother, Aleko; husband, George Gigounas; son, John Gigounas; and, grand-nephew, Constantine Pastis. Argie's youthful spirit, intelligence and style spanned a century, but the impression she left on her loved ones is infinite. May Her Memory Be Eternal.
