I didn't know Gary for long, but it didn't take long to know that he lived for his family. Gary and Susan made a beautiful family together and I know his legacy lives in their children and grandchildren. Godspeed.

Please accept my deepest condolences. A good heart has stopped beating, but a heart that has touched so many lives can't help but live on in those loved. Those we love don't go away; they walk beside us in our hearts and memories.

Memories of my little brother. As the youngest of five children, Gary Dick had to define his own unique place in our family. That turned out to be humor and generosity. He found amusement in simple things. His easy laugh brought joy to others around him. In addition, Gary Dick also cared for his family and friends and did what he could to help them. His love of animals started as a child with his first pet a Great Dane named Honey Sue. Then as a young man, he went with his friends to a horse auction. A mare and her young colt were being sold for slaughter. Gary Dick couldn’t stand the thought that the colt would be killed so he bought her and started his collection of horses. Something else he enjoyed was delivering food and toys on Christmas Eve for the Good Fellows. At the young age of 26 when his father died, he assumed the ownership of his father’s mechanical contracting business and became the sole bread provider for his mother and sister and later his new family. He had to change his business many times through the years to keep up with what was happening in the marketplace but the core business remained plumbing. However, he always had a vision to do what needed to be done. Besides his business and family, he had two passions: (1) battles and shoulder of wars, especially the Civil War, and (2) food. He satisfied the first by collecting toy shoulders and staging battles and the second by going to grocery stores and bakeries wherever he went. We talked once or twice a day until close to end. I miss him and love him.
