He was baptized and lived his faith in Jesus Christ daily.   He was a member of Cool Spring Baptist Church in Mechanicsville, VA at the time of his death.  When he lived in Campbellsville, he was a faithful member of Palestine Baptist Church.  He moved to Virginia in 1995 with his job as an Auditor with Southern States Cooperative where he worked for 39 years.

He volunteered at many events encouraging people to register as organ donors.  He was an inspiration to the employees and patrons of the local YMCA with his dedication and great attitude. Gary was lovingly referred to as the “Mayor of Laurel Meadows” because he never met a stranger and helped others connect as neighbors.  He generously sent gifts of Goldfish and Oreo Cookies to the children for no other reason than to be kind to them and their parents.  He was greatly loved by so very many people:  family, neighbors, doctors, nurses, therapists, exercise buddies and many more.

Gary leaves behind to cherish his memory his wife of 39 years, Paula and his two sons, Jonathan (Carrie) and Nicholas. He will be missed by his three grandchildren, Ava, Lucas and Cavan.  He is also survived by a loving Sister, Faye (Ken) Osborne and several very dear nieces, nephews and friends.  He was preceded in death by his sister Brenda Rafferty Thompson.
