Gary graduated from Dublin High School. He was a self employed contractor, custom home builder and real estate developer along with his father (Barney Builders/ Dodson Construction). He enjoyed many overseas trips serving as consultant/contractor for Hollister Co. and many other retailers. His passions throughout his life include: skiing, riding motorcycles and dirt bikes, horseback riding (sometimes in places he shouldn't have been riding), snowmobiling, and restoring and custom painting racing and luxury cars. Gary was a fun loving, thrill seeking, talented guy who could talk to anyone and would do anything for a friend. He left his impression everywhere he went and he will be missed.
