Gary came from nothing, had a strong work ethic and always persevered through all challenges. He was very smart and successful in the business world. Gary was a born leader and not afraid to fail. He loved riding his motorcycle and was President of Red Raiders Road Riders Motorcycle Club. Gary was mechanically-minded and could fix just about anything. When he was 30, he had a brain tumor removed and came back with a vengeance. Gary loved being a true Texan and was named after Gary Cooper. He enjoyed music, dancing and watching his hero John Wayne on the television. Gary enjoyed American history and turned family trips into history lessons. He was strong in his faith and after retirement remained active at First United Methodist Church in Houston. Gary will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
