Gary was a gentle loving soul, a hard worker, a selfless man. Gary was a man of few words and worked hard to provide for his greatest treasures in life, his children. He could be funny and loved giving a good scare. Gary loved working with his hands, woodworking and building and creating many projects and loved John Wayne movies. He loved going fishing, camping, and helping others and having a great time. He was known for his devotion to his family. His greatest joy was his family and spending time and playing with his grandkids. He instilled in his children to work hard, to serve others and to give to others.

Gary has a testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ, and knew the gospel to be true. He knew that families are forever, and knew the power of the atonement of Jesus Christ. There is no way to measure the impact and love he had on his family, and the legacy he leaves behind.
