Gary was a retired Toyota car parts salesman who owned a 1957 Cushman scooter, Eagle, all stock with a sidecar. It was originally his father’s and he inherited it. His father had it about eight years after purchasing it because when he was younger, he had one.
His father worked at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center, located at Edwards Air Force Base for 51 years. When his father died, Gary got a tattoo engraved, with the NASA meatball theme, but instead of saying “NASA” it said “DAD” (see below).
