Obituary for GARY L. WYNN, SR.

On September 11, 1958 in Washington D.C., Gary Wynn, Sr. was born to Albert F. & Rose L. Wynn. He was the second of three children and grew up in a loving home in Prince George's County, Maryland. Growing up Gary spent many summers in Warrenton, NC with his grandparents. It was there that he was baptized at Warrenton Baptist Church. Shiloh Baptist Church, Glenarden, MD was his home church; he learned many values there that would remain through his adult life.

A lover of music from an early age, Gary was intrigued by the Performing Arts. He participated in the church musical at Shiloh Baptist. In Junior High School, he began to play the saxophone. In High School, he joined the marching band and even started his own jazz bond. After High School, Gary went to Virginia State University where he received his Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. In 1986 on December 13th Gary married Kathy Wynn, the two welcomed Gary's only son, Gary Wynn Jr. Just a few years later, Gary and his family moved to Calvert County, MD where he began working for the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) and began a rewarding career that he found exciting and challenging. Working with local farmers was something Gary never envisioned for himself, but would soon become his ideal job. The slower pace of rural life appealed to Gary. It was his dream to retire and move to North Carolina where he could really enjoy a country living lifestyle. Although this didn't come to pass, he retired in January 2013 after more than 20 years of service to the local formers of Calvert County.

Gary was also on integral part of the Solomon Steelers Boys and Girls Club. For over 20 years, Gary dedicated his time to children of the southern Calvert County. He began as an Assistant Coach, eventually as the President and then Commissioner of the organization. Gary was an inspiration to countless kids and parents alike. Each Football season brought forth a new challenge for him and on opportunity to expand the program. Gary was always pushing the program upward and onward to new endeavors. Several teams in the Solomon's Boys and Girls Club went down to Daytona, Florida to participate in a national tournament.

The greatest joy in Gary's life was his family which was immensely important to him. As an adult, he was considered the anchor for family events and gatherings. Holiday diners were always at his house and he made it his duty to keep the family connected. A loving father, Gary volunteered at any event his son was a part of. Gary was there, from heading the county PTA to filming the high school football games.

Anyone who knew Gary will tell you he was o foodie; he loved to cook and put together entire menus for the family. Even when he was too sick to eat, he still seemed happiest when he was in the kitchen cooking for others. He was a jazz saxophone fanatic, on avid reader and even a motorcyclist for o brief while. Although he will be missed dearly by both friends and family, his memory will forever be with us.

Gary is survived by: his son, Gary Wynn Jr. and his wife Christina; mother, Rose L. Wynn; siblings, Albert R. Wynn and Elle Wynn; ex-wife Kathy Wynn; three grandchildren; two nieces, one nephew and many cousins. He was preceded in death by his beloved father Albert F. Wynn.
