Gary was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother. He was a devout Christian with a deep faith in the Lord.

Gary was born in Benton County, Lincoln, Missouri on May 1, 1933. His family moved to Iowa when he was still a baby, eventually settling in Eagle Grove.

Gary loved Colorado and eventually made his home in Denver where he was a realtor (Morgan Realty) for over 50 years. He met the love of his life, Rebecca (Becky) King, when he listed her house and eight months later, they were married.

He had a love for reading and collecting books, especially about US and Colorado history.
