What a character you were Uncle Gary! I’ll never forget when I was younger you came over and I thought you were an Amish guy with the way you were dressed. Funniest thing ever. Always wearing some sort of vest and long hair. I’ll miss you Uncle Gary! Love you ❤️

Well Gary, what can I say. You always treated me with kindness. From the day we met 32 years ago, kindness always. I remember you letting Harley wear your boots. And the trip to Memphis to pick my brother up!!!! Wow, that was definitely a wild ride, you Tony and I turned that 9 hour drive into a 19 hour drive!!! But hey, we made it back safe and sound!!! You will be missed by many!! Although the Vinson’s have a unique way of loving each other the love was always there. Rest easy my brother.

My Uncle Gary, You will be missed. I really don't have enough room on this page to say all the memories I have. Uncle Gary was a very loving and vocal man. He loved getting with his brothers and singing. Uncle Gary was a wild individual and would always say what was on his mind. I just want to say that I will truly miss him .
I remember as a teenager going to my Uncle's house and having more fun than a young man should have . I can say that there was never a dull moment when I was around him in the past. Uncle Gary I ( LiL Tony) will miss as everyone else will as well. I love you and say hello to all of our loved ones up there . Please tell Jesus I said hi.
Love you. LIL Tony.
