Gary loved going to farm auctions along with buying and selling farm machinery. He would help anyone and was known to spend hours looking for a piece of equipment when someone asked if he knew where one was for sale. Gary would never turn away a stray that showed up, but fed them and offered them a home. Gary’s dream was to own a farm which he and Jenny were able to do together.
