He graduated from Pottstown Senior High School, Pottstown, PA in June 1961 and attended Penn State University in Wyomissing, PA.

Gary served his country for 20 years in the US Air Force from 1962 to 1982. He was assigned to many bases in the US and around the world. He served in the combat zone in Vietnam during the Vietnam war. He was honorably discharged (retired) from active service in 1982.

Following his military service, Gary continued supporting the Air Force in civilian corporation defense contract efforts in Goleta, California and Saint Louis, Missouri until his retirement.

He enjoyed music, roller skating, dancing and he danced on the American Band Stand. In his later years, he could be found putting together model airplanes and cars.
