Obituary

Announcing Gary L. Horspool age 77 has departed us to discover his life's final journey. Born November 9, 1940 in Ogden Utah to Frank L. and Mavanwy Davis Horspool. Gary is preceded from life by his parents and older brothers Frank and Leslie with sisters Beverly, Betty and Marilyn.
Gary's remaining siblings include Kent (Linda) Horspool Larry (Rhonda deceased) Horspool and Ray (Lana) Horspool.

Gary is survived by his wife of 54 years Connie J. Warner, sons Gregory L. (Juliana) Horspool, Darin E. Horspool, and daughter Amy (Jay) Ashton. Gary's been gifted with 8 grandchildren 4 step grandchildren and blessed with one step great grandson and three great granddaughters.

An avid fisherman Gary enjoyed the outdoors, gardening, camping, “fishing” hunting, “fishing” golfing, “fishing” and bowling. (Did we mention “Fishing”) Gary also enjoyed music, performing music, performing karaoke and Djing karaoke whenever possible. Retired from Hill Air Force Base as a sheet metal mechanic, Gary also made custom garden ornaments and custom bird houses.

Gary served in the Army National Guard from 1963-69 with the 6th US Army Fort Irvin California and again from 1974-1976 with the 396th AVN (ATKHEL) Bountiful Utah.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Gray with all the staff at Utah Hematology Oncology in Ogden Utah,
as well as Dr. Campbell and Dr. Whipple with all their amazing staff for providing all the help necessary to help our father/husband.

A special thank you needs to be given to the fine group that works the pharmacy at the Roy Kents Market. Randy, you and your group have been so amazing through all these years, the help and support has been nothing short of amazing. Words cannot express our gratitude to the Intermountain Homecare & Hospice for making Gary's departure quiet, comfortable and calming. Thank you!

Gary's “Celebration of life” will be held Thursday January 11th at 11 am at Myers Mortuary 5865 S 1900 W Roy Utah 84067.

Born with an amazing sense of humor, his quick wit and personality will be dearly missed.
The family knows he's gone, but chooses instead to say, “He's gone fishing.”
