Gary worked for the Hennepin Paper Company in Little Falls for over 20 years. In 1997 he purchased his first milk truck and began hauling milk for local farmers. He enjoyed driving truck and visiting with the farmers. In his younger years, you could find Gary playing softball, shooting pool or winning horseshoe tournaments. Gary had a lifelong passion for classic cars, especially Mopar. Gary’s kids fondly remember him doing burn outs and sliding them across the freshly ArmorAlled back seat of his Dodge SuperBee when they were kids. He was an avid deer hunter all of his life and looked forward to Deer Camp every year. Gary's favorite holiday was the 4th of July. He was known for his awesome 4th of July parties and “better-than-the-pros" fireworks displays. He will be missed by all who knew him.
