Gary George Elms

December 5, 1964 — June 12, 2021

Beloved family man Gary George Elms Jr., 56, passed away June 13, 2021, at St. John Medical Center in Longview due to heart complications.

Gary was born Dec. 5, 1964, in Yreka, Calif., to Gery Elms Sr., and Joyce Elms. He was a high school graduate, and developed a strong work ethic as a machinist and welder. Gary had a gift for fixing things and was a jack-of-all-trades.

He was compassionate and intelligent, as well as stubborn and hard-headed. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, reading, time with his grandkids, building things with his own two hands, and gardening, but mostly Gary enjoyed seeing others happy. He was a giver and would help anyone in need if he could. He often put himself last to ensure everyone else was happy.

Gary loved his family with unconditional love. He is survived by a sister, Vicky McMillan; three children, Gary Elms III, Jessica Elms and Kaela Hudnall; and eight grandchildren whom he absolutely adored, Ava Elms, Navy Elms, Wyatt Dedmon, Sara Dedmon, Nathan Fry, Lexi Leal, Truly Hudnall, and Gypsy Hudnall. He was a good son, brother, father, and friend. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Gary was preceded in death by his parents; a grandson, Phoenix Leal; and a sister, Connie.

A celebration of Gary’s life will be announced at a later date. Flowers, donations and condolences are appreciated.
