Gary was a loving family man.  He cherished time spent with Sherrie, his daughters, grandchildren and extended family.  He will also be remembered for his extraordinary musical talent.  He could play any instrument but especially loved the keyboard and guitar.  He was always the catalyst, getting other musicians together to form a band or to just hangout and jam.

Gary passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 8, 2024.  He is so deeply missed.

Gary was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Roger, David and Jeff Darosett; and one granddaughter, Angel Darosett.
