Fr. Gary was born and raised in New Orleans, in a family of four boys. Fr. Gary knew from an early age he wanted to become a priest and began researching different orders in middle school. Fr Gary attended HC Schaumburg, St James Major Elementary, and Brother Martin HS.  He studied Biophysics for 3 years at the University of New Orleans and was a member of Phi Kappa Theta Fraternity.  After going on pilgrimage to Medjugorje in 1987, he left UNO to study at St Joseph Seminary College for the Archdiocese of New Orleans.  He received his BA in Liberal Arts and went on to study at Notre Dame Seminary.

After two years at NDS, he left the seminary in 1993.  In 1996, he married his wife, Judy, and they were married for 13 yrs.  Judy died in 2009 and Gary reapplied to the seminary.  He was re-accepted and studied for another three years, receiving his MDiv degree in 2013, and was ordained to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ on June 1, 2013.  He has served as Parochial Vicar at St Anselm in Madisonville, St Margaret Mary in Slidell, and he is now the Pastor of St Joseph Church & Shrine in Gretna and St Anthony Church in Gretna since July 2017.  He is active in two KC Councils, he is  the Chaplain for a Domestic Church Group, and for both David Crockett Fire Department and Gretna Police Department.
