Gary loved all animals and will be missed by his dog, Cleo; and cats, Stinky and Boo Boo. After retiring from Local 701, auto body work, he was a courtesy driver for Sutton Ford. He loved his motorcycles, muscle cars, and drag racing. He was a kindhearted man and would give you the shirt off his back. He was a wonderful neighbor who would help out anyone who asked. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
