Gary settled in Kingwood, Texas after bouncing around the globe as a “military brat.” He is married and has a daughter and a son – both of whom are “Aggies.” Along with being an avid sporting clays enthusiast, Gary enjoys recreational scuba diving, spearfishing, bird hunting, saltwater fishing – and much to the chagrin of his wife – computer gaming.
