August 8, 1940 – November 15, 2020
Gary L. Colbert, 80, passed away on November 15, 2020. He was born in Arkansas City, Kansas to Clifton L. Colbert and Madge L. (Farmer) Colbert.
A rustic, country man himself, Gary met his perfectly polished companion, the love of his life, Charlotte White, and married her on May 31, 1968 in Kechi, Kansas. For many years he was an inspector in the aircraft field, working for Cessna. He also was a member of Mason Lodge 110 for over 60 years. Gary was big in 4-H as a young boy which consisted of showing cattle. He served in the United States Army as a Sargent and was stationed in Heidelberg, Germany. He trained horses in his younger years. He worked hard in many different areas of his life but his family was always first priority. While there are certainly those who passed before him, Gary is survived by his loving wife, Charlotte; son, Craig L. Colbert; daughter, Kimberly L. Moss; brother, Vernon L. Colbert; sister, Karen Musson; grandchildren, Kaylee Moss, Kameron Moss, Tasha Moss, and Amy Baron; great-granddaughter, Halee Baron; several cousins; and his favorite fur-children, Bandit and Chloe.
A come-and-go visitation will take place on Saturday, November 21, 2020 from 12-5 p.m. at Resthaven Mortuary. Private family services will be held at a later date.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, that you make a donation to the American Cancer Society, online at https://www.cancer.org/involved/donate/memorial-giving.html or by mailing a check to P.O. Box 22478, Oklahoma City, OK 73123.

Gary, Charlotte and you opened your house and hearts to my family 30 years ago. I have always cherished the times we spent together, the camping trips, drives to see someplace around Kansas and just sitting on the back porch talking to each other. I won't know what to do without seeing you and hearing you talk about the worlds problems. You are more than a friend, you are a Brother to me and my family will miss you terribly. Rest in peace my Brother, you deserve it. Charlotte, Craig, Kimberly, Kaylee and Kameron please take peace that Gary is still with us in spirit. We will all be with him again in God's place.
