Gary worked as a painter in the powder coating industry, and established a business in Fremont, California, GB Industrial Spray Inc., in 1986. In 1992, he moved the business to Manteca, California. He was a member of The Manteca Moose Lodge where he took delight in socializing with friends over a cold beer. Gary was a content man who enjoyed a challenging game of poker, shooting pool, bowling and fishing. He loved to watch sports where he was a huge fan of golf and NASCAR but was a bigger fan of the Minnesota Vikings. When at home Gary could be found in the kitchen cooking for family or just relaxing with his dog Max and his cats. Gary will be remembered for his outgoing personality, his zest for life and his unconditional love he displayed towards others. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
