Hi, my name is Gary. I grew up in Arizona, but have lived in California since 1979. I served a full-time mission in Italy many years ago and love Italian food and basically all kinds of food:-) I am a fun loving, adventurous and spontaneous person and enjoy getting to know people, so drop me a line sometime.
I have been a very active member of the church for my entire life. I am a 6th generation member of the church with rich pioneer heritage. I have served as a counselor to four Bishops, as a Scoutmaster, High Priest Group Leader, Stake Executive Secretary, Ward Mission Leader, Young Men's President, etc. I am currently serving as a counselor in the Bishopric. I enjoy serving in the church and it has been an important part of my life. In addition to church service and scouting, I have been a foster parent to several foster babies. I am always game for doing something that is good and worthwhile and have fun in the process:-)
I was very athletic when I was younger and enjoy anything outdoors. I like to travel, go on long walks, enjoy camping, hiking, taking trips to the mountains, ocean, historical sites, and just plain old sight seeing. I like to read good books and enjoy good company. My biggest "hobby" right now is spending as much time as possible with each of my children and grandchildren.
