Age 60,  our loving husband, dad, and grandpa passed away November 3, 2019.  Born March 13, 1959 in Lansing, Michigan.  Gary worked at General Motors for 12 years. He was seen as a father figure by many, he was a caring individual that helped anyone who needed it. He was full of life and had a great sense of humor.  He enjoyed spending time working on his Harley-Davidson Motorcycle. He enjoyed many other hobbies such as hunting and fishing with his sons, fixing cars with his daughter and watching cartoons with his grandsons. One of his greatest joys was watching his sons and grandsons play baseball.

Puente; 3 grandchildren T.J., Kayden, and Noah B.; mother, Shirley Averill; 2 sisters, Lesa DeBoer, and April Jo Means; many nieces and nephews and many other family members and friends.  Gary was preceded in death by his father, Aniceto J.
