He began his employment at Jack’s Café for a few years until he began at Atchison Castings, now Bradken, on September 9, 1974, and was a diligent worker in the Custodial Department for forty-three years until his retirement.

He was a faithful member of New Life Assembly of God Church and served as a Sunday School Teacher. Gary was well known for his genuine kindness to others and his drawings that he shared with so many.
