Gary Alden McCarty II

Date of Death: February 3, 2023

Date of Birth: March 31, 1983


Gary Alden McCarty II, 39, After years of dealing with pancreatitis and multiple stomach health issues has gone home with the Lord to be welcomed with open arms from his Pup, Nan and Memere on February 3, 2023.

He attended Windsor School and graduated from Cony High School in 2001. Through the years he worked for Pine State Trading Company and the Town of China Transfer Station.
Gary enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He looked forward to spending time with his Dad and Josh going on fishing trips and rides on their Harley’s.  But what he loved most was when his Mom said yes to him getting his Mustang junior year of high school. He loved that car! And one thing is for sure, he especially enjoyed our family traditions and celebrating each holiday with everyone.

Gary always depended on his big Sister for her guidance and was so thankful for Tanya. He also considered her husband Josh his brother and enjoyed the time they shared and Gary knew that he could always count on them both no matter what.

Gary was proud to be an Uncle and he loved to spend time with his nephew Joshua rather it was to talk about his Ford truck or to go fishing and hunting. Gary loved the fact that he was the one to bring Joshua hunting when he got his very first deer and another one the following year! He also enjoyed going to Cony to cheer Joshua on at his Varsity Lacrosse games!  Gary enjoyed hanging out with his niece Leah and hearing all about her gymnastics meets and watching the videos of her routines when she completed a competition. And he was the one that fueled her love for snowboarding because she just mentioned it and he bought her what she wanted and her lift ticket! He grinned from ear to ear when he saw her “shred” down the mountain.

And we can't forget how much he loved their furbabies and spoiled them each time we were away. Buckwheat, Princess and Gus Gus will miss "the good life" on our next trip without having him.
Gary was predeceased by his paternal grandmother, Jeannette McCarty; maternal grandparents, Lloyd "Bucky" and Evelyn French.

He is survived by his loving parents, Gary and Lisa (French) McCarty; his sister, Tanya McCarty-Barrett and husband Josh; his nephew Joshua Barrett II; his niece, Leah Barrett; his paternal grandfather, Alden McCarty; his Aunt, Theresa Grotton and husband Tim; his Aunt, Rita Gower and husband David; his Uncle, Lloyd French Jr. and wife Lori; his Aunt, Betty Baker and husband Jim; his Uncle, Richard French; his Aunt, Lori Leclerc and husband Bruno; his Uncle, Doug McCarty; his Cousin, Penny Grotton; his Cousin, Peggy (Jason) Barrett; his Cousin, Tara (Jay) Steeves; his Cousin, Bub (Amy) Gower; his cousin, Lloyd (Jennifer) French; his cousin, Amanda French; his Cousin, Lisa Baker; his Cousin, AJ Baker; his Cousin, Jennifer (Matt) Dissell; and many other extended family members and friends.
