Gary L. Barlow, 71, Lakewood Ranch, Florida, formerly of Lima, Ohio, and Kokomo, Indiana, left this world to be with his Lord in heaven at 11:56 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018. He was born Sept. 2, 1946, in Oregon, to the late Dorothy (Durbin) Barlow, and Earl Barlow.
Gary was a devoted father, grandfather, and Christian. He touched more lives than a mind can comprehend. Gary was a retired pastor, loved the Chicago Cubs, and was an avid sports card collector. He moved to Florida in 2016 with his son, daughter-in- law, and grandson to watch his grandson pursue his baseball dreams at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
He leaves behind a son, Quinn Barlow; wife, Michelle Barlow; grandson, Brant Barlow; and a brother, David Barlow (Glenda), Kokomo.
Gary will be remembered for his selfless nature and will forever live in our hearts.
Private family memorial services will be in Bradenton, Florida.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made online at the American Diabetes Association.
