Gary was proud to serve in the United States Navy during Vietnam and separated his service to devote his life to creating and supporting a large family. He and his wife extended their loving arms to many who consider them as surrogate parents. Gary held many jobs which included holding his Master Electricians License and his class A General Contractors License. He also managed to build his wife’s 2-story dream home while working full-time and financially supporting the family. He retired in 2006 from the Lee County Port Authority due to medical illness and survived his battle with cancer. Gary was an avid hunter and sportsman, always taking time to educate his family about safety and hunting. Family was the most important thing to him, hosting all holiday and special occasion gatherings at his home with everyone present. Gary (Fafa) was the rock of the family and will always and forever be missed and loved!
