Gary leaves behind so many but he will be remembered, loved and revered for his hard work, his zest for life, his smile, his great stories, his stubbornness, his love of animals and the outdoors, his teaching ability and so many other outstanding qualities. His education started out a little rough in a one-room school house. He always said he went to 12 schools in 12 years. He graduated from Cheyenne East High School. At the age of 43 he entered as a freshman at UW then went on to law school graduating at 50 years old. Gary was preceded in death by his parents, sister and two brothers.
