Gary was an installer with the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters Local 1185 since 1989. He loved books and was an avid reader with eclectic taste. Music was also an important part of his life. Learning guitar and most recently mastering Somewhere Over the Rainbow on the ukulele! High on his list of hobbies were golf and riding his motorcycle as often as he could. A celebration of Gary's life will be planned when it is safe for all of us to get together again. Memorial donations to the American Cancer Society would be appreciated.
