Gary Charles Henry was born on June 3, 1955 in Riverton, WY to Clifford and Leatha (Aukey) Henry. Gary was raised in Johnston Valley south of Kinnear. He graduated from Riverton High School with the class of 1974.
After graduation he worked in the oilfield for two years before going to work with his Dad on the family farm in 1976. He worked on the farm until 1990 when he moved into town.

In Gary’s younger days he loved his fast cars and guns. He enjoyed soaking in hot pools with his family, collecting antiques, going to auctions, working on small engines, wood cutting, and tinkering in general.
