Gary D. Truley, age 67, passed away on May 22, 2023 at Mt. Macrina Manor in Uniontown, PA. He was born February 14, 1956 in Uniontown to Leonard and Janet Truley.
Gary was affectionately known as “Gump”. He loved working with his hands. He was often considered a jack of all trades. Gump was a talented and certified electrician. He was employed by Yezbeck’s Construction for many years. He was also a great carpenter.
Gump was the family “go to” for anything that needed assembled or fixed. He took pride in helping out and considered it a labor of love.
When he wasn’t working, some of his favorite pastimes were playing or watching basketball and football. The love of the games started for him as a young child. He was a diehard fan of the Red Raiders and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Gump enjoyed listening to music and dancing. You could not go wrong playing any Motown artists around him especially his favorite, Michael Jackson. Gump also loved to joke and had a one of a kind laugh.
