Gary loved his 1974 red corvette and was very fussy with it and also his other vehicles.

Gary liked bowling, golfing and fishing, until one of his friends (Ronnie James) passed away. Gary lost one of his friends (Tony Dumay) in 2014.

In the mid seventies Gary was an avid bowler bringing home many trophies; much to mom's dismay, as she had to dust all of them. Gary had many friends that bowled, golfed and fished. He said he was going to miss his bowling gang.
