He was born on November 18, 1952, in Dayton, Ohio, to the late Juanita (Allen) Glick.
He is survived by his wife, Agnes Marlene (Bertram) Allen, whom he married August 13, 1972; and his daughter and son-in-law, Sarah Allen and William Thrasher.
Gary was the owner of Warehouse Paint Center in Greenville for many years. He had a Wicked sense of humor and quick wit which helped him make friends easily. He never turned down a game of euchre and could often be found playing a round with his friends at the American Legion on the weekends. He was good at trivia, making people laugh, and getting Agnes to roll her eyes at him. Gary loved his family and was loved by them.
Per Gary's request, there will be no services at this time.
Tribute Funeral Homes will be serving Gary's family.
Online condolences may be shared with the family at www.tributefuneralhomes.com.
