Obituary

Ralph Gary left his earthly home on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at the age of 90 to eternally join his Lord and Savior in Heaven along with many loved ones. He was a godly man who spent much time reading the Bible. He lived a Christian life and was a member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. We are comforted knowing he is rejoicing in Heaven.
He was born October 10, 1928 in Webster County moving to Calhoun County (Slate Springs) when he was a young boy. Ralph was a simple man that was perfectly happy spending any free time at his home enjoying family, gardening, animals, word search puzzles, watching tv and reading. The only time he was away for an extended period of time was when he served his country. He was in the United States Army with the 70th Tank Battalion in the Korean War from 1950-1952. He was proud to serve his country. He was a kind and gentle man that focused on the good times while always keeping a positive outlook on life. He was a hard worker maintaining two jobs much of his life as an accountant for Rockwell International in Grenada, MS retiring in 1984 and maintaining a farm and livestock. In his later years much time and hard work was spent as a farmer and owner of Gary Farms. He is survived by his wife, Frances Rimmer Gary, three children, Ralph Dwayne (Leigh) of Memphis, TN, Debbie Gary Burns-Witschey (Leo) of Oxford, MS and Robert Lynn Gary (Angela) of Calhoun City, MS, five grandchildren Derek Gary (Annie) Memphis, TN, Stephanie Jewell (Mike) Lafayette, LA, Brandy Conner Montgomery (Nick) Hernando, MS, Kramer Gary (Cassie) Walthall, MS, Cole Gary, Calhoun City, MS and five great grandchildren, Ethan, Jackson, Caleb, Ava Henley and Weston, brother Blain Gary (Nancy) of Calhoun City, MS. He was preceded in death by his parents, Odie Lynn “Pete” and Miranda Pearl Blain Gary, sister, Joanne Gary Sturdivant, brother, John Gary and son Tony Lynn Gary.
Ralph’s main priority and no greater love was his family. He was a wonderful provider and the solid rock for all to lean on. There was no greater love than he had for his children and grandchildren. After retirement his grandchildren spent much time with their granddaddy. It was a true joy to him and very beneficial for them. He was a great role model instilling integrity, work ethic, and the great importance of education. He will be immensely missed but left a lifetime of wonderful memories and lessons that his family will always cherish.
His great love and compassion for children led him to make donations to St. Jude on a regular basis. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
The family would like to acknowledge the people that helped us care for Daddy at his home the last 7 months. We will forever be grateful.
