Former Police Officer
Father of two boys

Born December, 1969 in Wynnewood, PA, the youngest of 4 siblings.  Graduated from Lower Merion, high school in 1988, and went on to earn a bachelor of science degree in criminal justice from West Chester University.  A childhood dream became a reality when he was hired as a police officer in the township of Lower Merion on the streets he grew up.  Over his 13 years with the department Gary work in several units; patrol div., bicycle unit, and special operations unit, where he worked as a highway enforcement officer on a motorcycle.  This was his dream position.  He was also a certified police vehicle driving instructor as well as teaching DARE.

In 2007 that all came to an end with his diagnosis of ALS.  Gary continued to work as an evidence technician in the department for two more years until he decided his time was better spent with his family.  He is a divorced father of two boys, Joey age 11, and Tyler age 9.  His time is now spent with his girlfriend, Kim, his two boys, as well as family and friends.  He continues his fight every day as an advocate for ALS, and has learned to live each day to the fullest.
