His older brothers, Johnny Lewis White Jr. and Eugene White preceded him in death as well. Gary accepted Christ as his personal savior in his early adulthood. He loved God with all his heart, he was not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and lived his life accordingly. As a child Gary always kept everyone laughing and always had a smile on his face. Anyone who knew him, knew that he was quite a jokester. He had a love for baseball and roller skating. Gary attended the Detroit Public School system and graduated from Finney High School in June of 1973. He furthered his education at Wayne State University, receiving a Bachelor's of Business Administration Degree. Moving into adulthood, Gary kept those same playful qualities. He was very hardworking and knew the dedication it took to accomplish his goals. Gary began working at the postal service and did so for twenty years while simultaneously starting and building his franchise with Jani King. He had an entrepreneurial spirit and went on to own several apartment buildings along with his franchise. Being as kindhearted as he was always willing to reach back and lend a helping hand.
