Gary had a fascination with plants at an early age. Gary’s green thumb was renowned among family and friends. He enjoyed spending time in his garden and cultivating a variety of exotic plants. He could identify every species that crossed his path, and his enthusiasm for gardening was contagious. Gary’s interests in life extended beyond the soil. He was an active member of the local bird enthusiast “Aviculture Society of Utah”. There he shared his love for all rare bird species.

Geology was another passion that consumed Gary’s thoughts. He enjoyed explaining and collecting earth’s ancient history. Gary’s journey was a testament to his lifelong pursuit of knowledge. “As the seasons change, may Gary’s spirit continue to bloom and soar.”

Gary’s daughter Ginny would like to share a special poem she wrote in honor of his memory:

Dad you are forever in my heart.

The moment that you left me, my heart split in two.

One side filled with memories; the other side died with you.

I often lay awake at night, when the world is fast asleep

and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheek.

Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday

but missing you is a heartache, that never goes away.

I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain, as my life goes on without you but it will never be the same.

I love you daddy
