Gary, “Lil’ Gary”, as he was known to many, was educated in the Rutherford County School System and graduated from Oakland High School in May of 2009, where he excelled at basketball and football. When Gary was a young boy, he made the best decision to give his life to the Lord.
Gary had a sense of humor that was like none other. He could brighten up anybody’s day with that infectious smile, that will be deeply missed. Gary most enjoyed spending quality time with his son Kolby, being with his loving siblings and cheering on his favorite sports teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers, (as long as they were winning). Gary will be deeply missed, not only by his family, but by the entire Murfreesboro Community.
