Gary enjoyed being at home surrounded by his friends and family watching cartoons and sharing his love for collecting things. His collections were endless from the Harley that sat in his living room to the figurines he loved to share his latest treasures. Gary’s humor was his light; he could work a room and make sure everyone was laughing for hours. He had a way to make you smile.
Per Gary's wishes, cremation service will be handled by Samaritan Funeral Home.
