He lived and breathed golf and was a member of the Territory Golf Club and played in a golf league at Blackberry Ridge in Sartell. Gary was a devoted and loving husband to his wife, Terri. He especially enjoyed being with his family. His children and grandchildren brought him extreme pride… as many have heard!
