Prior to retirement he had been employed by Fulton Piano and Organ Company. He was a member of First United Methodist Church, Greensburg. Gary was deeply loved by his family. He was admired for his strength, bravery, wit and zest for knowledge around his passions. He was a lover of rock ‘n roll music, cars, hunting, the outdoors, animals, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was also a history buff and always loved reciting his latest found facts at family gatherings. He loved his family, and his two young granddaughters could make him light up like no one else. He and his beloved wife of 44 years looked forward to every visit with them, their daughter and son-in-law. We will remember him lovingly, “on this harvest moon” and always.
