Gary was a loyal and dedicated employee for forty-nine years, becoming the regional manager of Dealers Electric Supply Company until his retirement in 2007. He enjoyed many outside activities earlier in life including hunting, fishing and golf. After retirement he was an avid woodworker and handyman. He made many beautiful pieces of furniture that many friends and relatives enjoyed. He was loved by many, including his neighbors in Georgetown and Cedar Park. He walked around the neighborhood checking on all of his friends and seeing if they needed help fixing things or just sitting and talking to them. They fondly named him the honorary Mayor of Bellamy Circle.
