Gary served four years in the Coast Guard earning an honorable discharge as a Machinery Technician Second Class. In addition to being a loving husband and father, Gary was a Master Mechanic and owned his own business.
Gary attended Sun Valley High School and graduated from Delaware County Area Vocational Technical Schools before joining the Coast Guard. In his down time, Gary enjoyed spending time on his boat with his wife and children, fishing, and spending time with close friends. He is remembered by his children for his weekly Sunday breakfasts, ingenuity and craftmanship, quiet humor and the depth of his love for his family. Gary was always ready to play street hockey, go on a Saturday morning fishing trip, and driving over the hills to his parents’ house. Gary’s greatest joy was becoming a grandfather and loved blowing bubbles, playing T-ball and running trains at Christmas.
He leaves behind family and friends, but he leaves them with cherished memories they will never forget.
