(April 21, 2002)
George C. McGary, 72, died Sunday, April 21 in Powell after a long battle with cancer.
He was born May 10, 1929, on the family homestead near Deaver, the son of Willard and Clara McGary.
In 1947, he married Rosemary Sewald of Sterling, Colo. They made their home in Powell where they raised three children, Wanda Dolan and husband Mike of Cody, George Cole McGary and wife Sherry of Powell and Sandy Lynn of Powell; and five grandchildren, Nick, Breck and Lindsey McGary and Chad and Jody Lynn.
His grandchildren were his pride and joy, and he rarely missed any of their activities.
He was a member of the Masonic Lodge of Powell and recently received his 50-year membership pin.
While visiting with his large, extended family was his favorite way to spend his days, he also liked to hunt and fish and loved his trips into the high mountain passes. Every summer he enjoyed planting a large garden, but his real joy came in giving it all away to anyone who stopped for a visit.
At his request, there will be funeral services.
