Gary R. Tillery Obituary
Tillery, Gary R.

Gary R. Tillery, 58, died August 10, 2016. He is survived by his wife, Julie; his children; Katherine Gayle and fiance Tyler Hill, Kristopher Phillip, Kyle Bennett and Kerry Reeves Tillery; his mother, Georgia May Tillery; his siblings; Gayle Pedrick and husband, Dan, George Tillery and wife, Carol, Glen Tillery and wife, Lori, Gena Tillery Hoagland and husband, Dan; and numerous other family and friends.

Gary was preceded in death by his father, Garland Tillery. Mr. Tillery along with his family have been a vital part of our community for over 60 years. Gary has been an active owner/manager of Tillery Chevrolet/GMC in Moriarty, Tillery Buick/GMC in Los Lunas and J.D. Byrider in Albuquerque. He has also been a member of the Chevrolet National Dealer Council and the New Mexico Auto Dealers Association. Gary was an avid pilot who loved to fly. He was a member of the Duke Flyers Association and the American Bonanza Society.

Mr. Tillery was very proud to be involved with his children's activities and sports and served as a board member and coach at the Altamont Little League. He supported and enjoyed many golf, swimming, baseball and soccer teams that his children belonged to over many years. He was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, and greatly cherished the lifelong friendships he made while at Eastern New Mexico University. Gary was an active member of the NM Chapter of YPO/WPO International, another source of many close friendships. Mostly, Gary treasured the time he had with his family and friends, especially at his cabin on the San Juan River where he could fish or just enjoy the beauty. He was quick to make friends, enjoyed a good day on the golf course and loved a joke, good or bad. Gary's greatest source of joy was his family, spending time with them, no matter what the activity. A strong man of faith and active member of Sandia Presbyterian Church, Gary was comforted by Gods eternal promises.

A Celebration of his Life will be Monday, August 15, 2016, 4:00 p.m. at Sandia Presbyterian Church, 10704 Paseo Del Norte NE @ Eubank. Memorial contributions may be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, www.JDRF.Org., 6100 Indian School Rd NE, # 110, Albuquerque, NM, 87110. or the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, www.LLS.Org, 6100 Indian School Rd NE # 225, Albuquerque, NM 87110.
