Gary worked for Emerson Electric for several years in customer service and later owned and operated the former Jacksons Grocery which became Gary’s Grocery, for over 12 years. Before his medical retirement, Gary was a Rural Carrier for the United States Postal Service for over 10 years. His gregarious and outgoing personality meant that Gary never met a stranger. He could stop for a tank of gas and end up with a lifelong friend by the time he left the store. His friendly, outgoing personality shined thru even during his illness. He would still make people smile with a funny anecdote or just by sharing his smile with them. He was known as a prankster and loved joking with everyone, not just his friends and family.
