Born in Pittsburgh, PA on February 17, 1953, he is the son of Bill and Helen Heyl of Gibsonia.

Gary worked in construction. He was very skilled and hardworking and took great pride in providing for his family. In his free time, he enjoyed nature and the outdoors, including fishing, golfing, and gardening. He was always busy fixing and tinkering with his model trains and other things around the house. Gary loved cooking, watching hockey and football, and playing board games with his wife. He was quick witted and full of useless information, but you would want him on your trivia team. Above all else, Gary loved his family and playing with his grandchildren.
