During his free time, Gary loved to go fishing with his family, hunting and spent most of his time outside tinkering on multiple different projects. Recently in the year he had spent some time with making honey and had a lot of success with that. There wasn’t anything Gary couldn’t do, he could take something and make it into something wonderful. Gary always had that kindness and smile that would light up an entire room. His laugh could always make you smile. He always made sure his family was safe and well taken care of and loved them dearly. In times of need, Gary was always there to offer help to anyone who needed it.
