Gary was born Aug. 23, 1943 in Columbus, NE to Howard and Harriet Way. His life adventure started from the sand hills of NE to WY and then Alaska and back. He held many jobs at which he excelled-you name it and he probably did it. He wore many hats, many badges and touched many lives.

Gary’s posterity is 14 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren so far. Gary leaves behind so many but he will be remembered, loved and revered for his hard work, his zest for life, his smile, his great stories, his stubbornness, his love of animals and the outdoors, his teaching ability and so many other outstanding qualities.
His education started out a little rough in a one room school house. He always said he went to 12 schools in 12 years. He graduated from Cheyenne East High School. At the age of 43 he entered as a freshman at UW then went on to law school graduating at 50 years old.
