Gary Allen Pease

June 17, 1948 ~ July 25, 2017 (age 69)
My beloved husband, Gary Allen Pease is now resting in peace.  He passed on July 25, 2017 of CNS Lymphoma (brain cancer).

Surviving loved ones: Gary married Marguerite on September 7, 1968.  Three daughters, Diana, Michele Raby (husband Dave) and Stacy Ball (husband Phil) and four grandchildren, McKenna, Jacob, Justin and Jared and one sister, Julie Kratz.  Gary's mother Morella Pease recently passed on July 21, 2017 at the age of 99.

Gary will be remembered by his wife, family and friends for his complete devotion to making everyone smile and laugh.  He would tell Marguerite "My sole purpose in life is to make you laugh every day."  And he did.

Gary worked for 27 years at Merit USA, Pittsburg.  He retired on March 15, 2017.  His first 25 years were with "perfect" attendance.  He loved his job and all the wonderful people with whom he worked.

He played the piano and keyboard in several bands in his younger days.  Most memorable,  "The Six Pack."  He also made several of his own CD's. Favorite hobbies included waterskiing and RVing.  Lake Shasta is where Gary taught many kids how to waterski and he had the patience of a saint with each and every one he taught.  Gary and his family were RVing since the mid 1970's and the RV's grew from a tiny Toyota Chinook pop top to a bus style 38' motorhome. Loved getting behind the wheel of the RV and traveling through "The Avenue of the Giants" redwoods allthewhile listening to Willie Nelson's "On the road again."  From there traveling would continue up the west coast of Oregon, Washington and over to Victoria, B.C.

His family will miss our Shasta trips and boating excursions and I  will miss my traveling "buddy."  But all of the wonderful memories will remain FOREVER.

No memorial service is scheduled, but a "Celebration of Life" will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions to St. Jude Children's Hospital at  For dedication in the memory of Gary, please use the e-mail address of in the requested box on their web site.
