Gary had a love for the outdoors, and hunting, and fishing, and continued to live an adventurous life after retirement from the Air Force. His fishing excursions took him form Rock Creek in Montana to bass fishing in New Hampshire and salmon fishing on the Columbia River in Oregon to sticking his feet in the Amazon River.
