Gary was a switchman for 42 years at Santa Fe Railway until his retirement in 2009. He started woodworking out of his shop after his retirement.

The couple who was married for 29 years loved spending their time together and vacationing frequently to their favorite spots. He was a self proclaimed weatherman and could always tell you the forecast or show you the radar. Gary loved to sit on his front porch and look out into his fields as the sun came up with a good cup of coffee. Gary loved taking his whole family to his hometown, West Plains, and showing them around. He was a food connoisseur, caring father, loving husband, family man, and dedicated and loyal friend.
