Gary Allen Reimers

Gary Allen Reimers

April 25, 1980 ~ Oct. 7, 2016

Gary Allen Reimers, age 36, passed away Friday, Oct. 7, 2016.

He was born on April 25, 1980 in Johnson City, Texas.

If you knew Gary, you knew he was always working.

Driving around in his Ford Expedition, pulling that trailer, trimming up trees, and always with a smile on his face.

Better yet, he was always putting a smile on y'alls face!

He never met a stranger and was always looking to make someone's day better.

Gary left us all too soon.

But he left us a piece of himself -his baby girl, Kenzleigh, to love, laugh and keep his memory alive.

She was his pride and joy, the twinkle in his eye, and his greatest achievement.

He and Kenzleigh spent their days together living and learning.

Education was the most important gift he imagined giving Kenzleigh.
