Gary Wayne Jennings

May 08, 2018

September 8, 1943 - April 23, 2018

Gary Wayne Jennings, 74, of Crowley, Texas passed away on Monday, April 23, 2018.

Gary was born in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, on September 8, 1943 to Donald Lee Jennings and Paulene Elmyra Charbonneau Jennings. He graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School in 1961.

As a child Gary enjoyed working on his family's dairy farm. Gary served his country in the United States Navy aboard the U.S.S. Princeton.

Gary's main love was his family. When he wasn't fixing something or helping his children and grandchildren he loved to ride his bike, watch NASCAR, and play on his John Deere tractor. Gary never met a stranger and always put others ahead of himself. His great sense of humor is going to be missed dearly.

Gary was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Paulene Jennings; and parent-in-laws, Charles and Maydine Roslyn. Charles and Maydine had a very special place in his heart and he took great care of them as they lived next door to him for over 36 years.

Survivors: his loving wife of 52 years, Sharon Jennings; children: Kevin Jennings and wife Shelley and Kelly Jennings Peterson and husband Terry. He adored his grandchildren: Shelby Schott, Jennifer Jennings, Aaron Schott, Corey Jennings, Ryan Jennings, Logan Jennings, Emma Peterson, and Mallory Peterson. Siblings: Peggy Jennings, Donnie Jennings, Kayla Piscia, and Denise Archer. Gary had a big extended family that included brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that a donation be made to Fort Worth Botanical Society for a Memorial Bench in honor of Gary Jennings (Contact Erdie Allsup 817-392-5548), Shriners Hospitals for Children, or PAWS for Veterans.
