Gary loved the outdoors and nature. He especially enjoyed fishing, hunting, and spending time with his dogs. He also enjoyed flying and riding motorcycles.

I was one of Garys nurses at Manor Care years ago. Gary honestly made my shift better every time I was assigned to his floor. He was always kind and patient with us when we were busy. Im sorry for your loss.

We each express our sincere condolences to all of Gary's family at his passing. We especially appreciate the many acts of loving kindness done over the years by his nephew, Carey Woolsey, in providing comfort and support in so many ways. These are all acts taught by the Savior Jesus Christ, and Gary was the recipient of genuine Christlike love and concern.
