About Gary:

Gary has been listening to KSHE since 1977. His brothers were several years older than him, and he was introduced to KSHE at an early age

Gary loves that KSHE plays all of the Rock N’ Roll hits from the past and the present

Gary has worked and lived in the metro area (Bethalto, Wood River, Alton, IL) for all his life. They currently live in Wood River at the present time

Gary is a small parts finisher for Eaton Corp. in Troy, IL

Gary is married to his wife Kellie and they have a 7 year old son, Colin. He likes to ride around in his dad’s truck and jam to the cool tunes on KSHE. He has even been to a couple of KSHE blood drives. He has explained to his son the importance of giving blood and he hopes he is a future donor

Gary’s wife, Kellie, is a computer geek. LOL!! He says she hates it when he says that. She keeps all the electronics up and running and updated in their house

Gary and his family love camping. They were able to upgrade to a nice, new 5th wheel camper about two years ago. It is a 31 foot Wild Cat by Forest River that he got at Colemans Country Campers in Hartford, IL. They camp locally on the weekends, and they take one big trip once a year. This year they are planning on Holiday World in Indiana and next year they are doing Mount Rushmore

Gary likes to go bike riding, on trail walks and other small adventures
