Brother Willie (Bill) Jameson (Maryann), sisters Cheryl (Cheri) Gibson (Gene) and Debra (Debbie) Benjamin (Joe). 5 nieces and nephews, 11 great nieces and nephews and 1 great great nephew. Gary loved life and lived it to the fullest. He loved family. He loved friends He just loved people. He loved his dogs. He loved to look at beautiful flowers. He loved to laugh. He looked forward to Christmas and Easter and planned ahead the movies he would watch. He looked forward to football college and Pro every year. Gary, Joe, Dudley and Randy had many fun times fishing and laughing while Gary sat in the “pig pen” of the boat. He loved to go visit Heather and his grandkids in Florida and eat good seafood and spend time with them. He grew up going to Pickwick loving the river and playing in the creek behind the cabin. Many Crawdads were sacrificed to the “sun god.” Count to 10. He was headed out West on his stick horse until the police found him and took him home. We will never forget the Christmas grill rocket traveling down Walnut Grove Road. He always made us laugh. Gary attended East High School and remained in touch with many of his high school friends. He loved and worked in construction all his life. Gary had a generous spirit, joy for life and total commitment to family. Be free, safe and have no pain or fear. You are in the arms of the Angels. We love you and miss you. See you soon.

    Condolences to Gary’s family. I always enjoyed talking with Gary over the years. He was a true construction man and always had a good approach to solving problems in the field. He always had a smile and some interesting story to share with you. You never wanted to argue about a job with him because he knew his business. I know he loved his family a lot and will be missed by all those who knew him.

    Loved you cousin. We weren’t really cousins but my dads sister married a man who was related to the Jameson’s and we always called each other cousin.

    Ken Weatherford lots of good times back in the day.

  13. Gary was like a brother to me in high school. We would hang out every day and solve all the problems that teenagers had at that time. That bright smile and his invincible attitude toward life will never be forgotten. Rest In Peace my friend. Candy Stewart Hart
