Gary was born June 8, 1978, in Alabama.

Gary was a loving father, hardworking Christian man, proud uncle, who loved to fish, hunt, fix and race cars, coach baseball, and play golf.

He was a country boy who grew up in Arley, but later as an adult moved to Jasper, Alabama playing baseball and football as No. 4.

His laughter lit up the room with that cute little chuckle he made with a huge grin on his face.

He loved hanging out with friends and he loved his family. He worked hard to provide for his family. His pride and joy was his son Bailey.

He will be remembered for his room-brightening smile, huge giving heart, and love of family and friends.
