Born in Trenton, NJ, Gary lived in Newtown before moving to Morrisville in 1993. Gary was a Realtor, currently working, for the past 3 years, with Berkshire Hathaway Fox & Roach Realtors in Lower Makefield. Prior to working as a Realtor, Gary worked in the banking and mortgage industry for many years. He also owned an Italian restaurant in the late 1980s and early 1990s that had the first wood-burning pizza oven in Bucks County.
He was a parishioner of St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Morrisville, where he served as a lector. Gary was a member of the National, PA, NJ, and Bucks County Associations of Realtors, and he was a PIAA Basketball official. He grew up playing baseball, basketball, and soccer in Lawrence, NJ. One of his proudest moments was winning the high school State Soccer championship in 1976. He enjoyed cooking and grilling, watching the Food Network and HGTV. He was an avid sports fan, rooting for all the Philadelphia teams, especially the Eagles. When he married Anne, he became an honorary Penn Stater and was a huge fan of all things Penn State, and enjoyed many football games tailgating and celebrating with our PSU family. He also coached soccer and basketball at St. Johns for many years. Gary loved spending time at his home at the Jersey Shore where the annual Atlantic City air show was the highlight of his summer.
