Gary was born March 18, 1948 to Charles "Dawson" and Charlotte (Farris) Lyon in Coldwater. He graduated high school and began a long career in the automotive industry.
Gary worked for Goodyear as a service writer before getting involved in car sales. He won many awards as a salesman in both Michigan and Arizona.
Gary was a man with a sincere love of cars. He was an avid Dale Earnhardt, Sr. fan. Gary enjoyed car auctions and watching the Barrett-Jackson sales. He attended NASCAR Driving School. Gary was a member of the "Saturday Morning City Glass Crew", attempting to solve the many issues facing the world today. He always had time for a Pepsi and a trip to the Goodie Shop. Gary will be remembered for being a great storyteller, his exceptional memory, and doing things in a slow and particular manner. His true joy in life was spending time with his children and especially his grandchildren.
