Gary was born January 16, 1966 in Atlanta, Georgia to Linda and John Smith. He was one of

Carolyn, Anthony, Steve (Carol) and several special nephews and nieces. He was preceded in

He is always looking down over his family and protecting them still. Gary will be greatly missed
but always in our hearts until we meet again.
