Gary was born on October 25, 1935 in Royal Oak, Michigan. He was the middle child of five children born to Cloyce and Bernice Clark. Due to his father’s job his family frequently moved, which led him to Kansas City. It was while working as a floor supervisor at a local variety store that he met the love of his life, Roslyn Adams. They were married on July 19, 1959 and were blessed with two sons. Gary worked for the Kansas City fire department for 32 years, until he retired as a FAO (Fire Apparatus Operator). In his free time, he cherished nothing more than spending time with his family.
