Gary worked for Alamance Fence and retied as a truck driver. He was also an avid model airplane and helicopter hobbyist & collector. He enjoyed building them and flying them anywhere and everywhere he could or couldn't (he lost many in the woods or fields etc). He lived a very unpretentious life and made the best of his days by hanging out with his neighbor/friend Noé Virgen & wife Ruby Cordova, riding his motorcycle, flying his planes/choppers and piddling with anything & everything he could.
