Gary Joseph Trepanier, 63, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on October 30, 2019. Gary was born on May 22, 1956 in Yakima, Washington. He was raised in Cowiche and attended school there. He graduated from Highland High School in 1974. Shortly after high school he went to work for Ed Trepanier Excavating in 1974 with his dad and brothers Joe and Dave. Later on he started his own company called Gary J. Trepanier Excavating. He also acquired many house rentals over the years. He loved riding motorcycles, four wheelers, snowmobiling, fishing on his pond, shooting guns, and traveling the world. In January Gary met the love of his life Patricia Arnt on a cruise. They had planned to be married this November on a trip to Israel. He loved her very much. He touched many lives during his lifetime and will be missed by many.

Gary had a megawatt smile and loved talking to people. He was a gift from God. After he found Jesus, he daily asked God for wisdom and strength to make the right choices for his business and soon to be family. We are selfish and want his physical body here on earth, but his spirit has written on all our hearts and we take that and make this world a better place. For what one writes on the soul of others is what one will take out of this world, because there is never a hearse pulling a trailer.

All glory be to God for his wonderful life. Out of all the “stuff” that Gary acquired all of his life he always said love was the greatest gift of all. We all just want to be loved, in Jesus holy precious name. Amen.

Gary is survived by his brothers Tom Trepanier and his husband Craig Wilson, Joe Trepanier and Dave Trepanier; his fiancé, Patricia Arnt; and her children he called his own, Brittany, Tabitha, Jessica, JR, Autumn, Faith and granddaughter, Violet; nephews Tyler Trepanier, Trey Trepanier, Trevor Trepanier and his wife Desiree Trepanier, step brother, Bob Petty; treasured friend, Russ Mazzola as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Gary was preceded in death by his parents Charlotte and Dean Petty, Ed and Pauline Trepanier, brother Jerry Trepanier, and sister in law Dee Dee Trepanier. Special thanks to Cindy Rollinger who was a dedicated and loyal employee at Gary J. Trepanier Excavating for several years.

“Life in precious, fragile and short, it is a gift and a blessing and not to be taken for granted.”

Thank you and may God bless all the faithful employees, past and present, that made his a success.

A Funeral service will be held at Yakima Foursquare Church, 700 N. 40th Ave. Yakima on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. A committal service will follow at Terrace Heights Memorial Park Mausoleum.

When my family moved here we had bought land sight unseen and drove up with a truck and travel trailer to live in until our house was built.long story short there was a problem and our trailer went over a bank and we didn’t know what we would do.we knew not one person in Yakima.we were broke .about one week later Gary and is friend showed up after hearing someone making fun out of our predicament and finding out where we were.He pulled us out of there and never asked for anything except for us to be back on track.He had no reason got no glory for his good deed.he did it because that’s what he felt was right.we will pay it forward .if we can ever do anything for his family we would be happy to.

Gary lived life to the fullest in his own unique way. He left behind many happy memories and accomplishments. He loved his cabin at Rimrock. We will remember him riding his motorcycle with hair flowing into Chelminar camp grounds. All of us will miss his welcoming smile, laugh, and friendly conversations. Hopefully a memorial to Gary will be set up to carry on the love he had for the mountains and his cabin. You will be missed, Gary!

I grew up next to Gary and worked for him. He taught me many lessons which some I still use. Gary would come to Arizona in the winter and we would hang out and talk. Last winter he came down and I became a Chauffeur and met Patricia. It was fun. I was up in Washington couple of months ago and was able to spend time with Gary and we planned to meet up here in AZ this winter.
I will surely miss Gary!
My condolences to Patricia and his family.

Gary was a dear friend. My husband had worked for Gary, we lived directly behind him for several years and enjoyed attending church with him.
I spoke with Gary only minutes before he left this Earth. He was so excited & in love. He shared pictures of himself and his "Honey , Dear", as he put it. Gary went from "happy to Heaven" in 0.2 seconds.
I'm still in shock that he's gone, yet greatful that God sent me there that day.
Your smile will be with me until I see you again my friend. Rest well in God's love, in Jesus's name I pray. Amen

So blessed to have had the pleasure of calling Gary my friend. He was always a very active community member and gave untold goods, advise, and time to benefit others. When he wasn't supporting hus church, Rotary, local businesses, the Yakima Police and Sheriffs Depts, and friends & family, he was organizing community get togethers at his residence. He regularly touched bases with me to command the professional accomplishments of the Police Dept. He was a wealth of knowledge about history, agriculture, and the people of the Yakima Valley. I am still in shock and so sad at the fact he is gone too soon. My heart breaks that he finally found his soulmate and their future was cut short. Till we meet again on the other side Gary...rest in peace.

I used to deliver auto parts to his shop when I worked for Federated Auto Parts. Every time, I had to deliver the paperwork to either him or Cindy. He was ALWAYS happy to see me and that was the highlight of my daily trips to West Valley. And, at the Sunfair parade, he would make sure to ride past me and my family to wave or say hi. I could tell he loved that motorcycle! I was blown away by the news of his passing. Rest now, Gary. Your work here is done.

Gary has been a family friend and acted as "uncle" to our 2 kids for many years, through good times and more difficult times. He was always looking for ways to help, giving of his time and energies, providing fun experiences on motorcycles, snowmobiles, operating big equipment, or riding in his 'Vette, or providing opportunities to earn money; sometimes just offering a listening ear, or a place to hang out for a while...he was never too busy for them. He had a big heart , a big, ready smile, and truly cared about others around him. He will be greatly missed, tho I'm sure he's already sharing new great times with David as they worship together in heaven. I'll see you both again...
