Gary was a faithful servant and witness for his Lord and Savior all his life as a Sunday School teacher, music director, youth director and choir member. He was a faithful member of Blackshear Place Baptist Church in Flowery Branch, Ga., before moving to Arkansas to be closer to his family. Even as his health deteriorated, he continued to tell others about Jesus.
