Gary was a proud retiree from American Ring Manufacturing, having worked there for 32 years. After retirement, he sold his house in the city and moved to the country to start a farm next door to his son. He loved his new children: 2 goats and 6 chickens, and took much pride in caring for them. Gary loved singing karaoke with his family and friends, especially his son Gary and daughter Cheryl. Some of his favorite songs were by Conway Twitty, which he sounded just like him when he sang. Gary loved singing, “It’s Only Make Believe” and he especially loved singing the duet “Joni” with his daughter Cheryl. He loved everyone and made friends easy.
Affectionately known as "Hound Dog", he enjoyed going to car shows with his son Gary and he loved his black mustang that he called "his little girl." Gary was an easy going, family man, who found love and laughter in everything he did. His smile and endless happiness will be dearly missed.
