Gary attended Beardstown Schools. He worked many years for Excel and Cargil in Beardstown, and later for Butch Applegate’s truck wash, and Rich Hardwoods. Gary spent a lot of time outdoors, working in his garden, and fishing. He enjoyed socializing with his friends and spending time with his furry friend Snoopy. No matter what the moment was, Gary’s sense of humor always made things better.
