Gary grew up in the city of Calgary, Enderby, B.C. (adopted traditionally by an indigenous family), Piikunii, Siksika, Eden Valley (adopted by Lefthand family), Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. Gary was gentle-spirited, kind, compassionate, and had a lot of respect for his elders and his family whom he really loved each and everyone one of them. Gary grew up with his close cousins Tara, Denise, Tamara, and Michelle, alongside his sisters late Cheryl and Crystal. He was very close to his grandma Noella and his aunts and uncles on his mom’s side. He was very traditional in his dancing and way of life; he did a lot of beading, tanning hides, and making native dance outfits for both males and females.
