Born Sunday, June 8, 1947 in Olla, Louisiana, he was preceded in death by his parents, Beulah Mae Hemphill Wright and Elbert James Wright.

Gary was known far and wide for his storytelling. Gary began honing that skill while making his classmates laugh at GHS, working the oilfield, and through the airwaves driving a log truck going by the CB-handle…Bull-Moose.

Later in life, his story would eternally change when he accepted Christ as his Savior. Called to preach, Gary would find his life’s passion telling the greatest story every told. He would spend hours in personal study, one-on-one discipleship, teaching small group, preaching Bible Conferences, serving as interim pastor at several Baptist churches and just fellowshipping with fellow ministers.
