Gary enjoyed many things, which he was very passionate about, he loved to hunt, fish, beading, wood-burning, cruising with his wife, softball, golfing and playing pool.  Gary was very passionate in all he did, with his greatest passion being his children.

He said that each of his children had different parts of his personality. To sit in a room with all of his children feels as though he is there with you. He felt no greater happiness than when all of his kids were around him.
