To a great husband, father, and grandfather. Gary was born to Fred Harry Bath, and Faye Robinson Bath on July 14, 1956. The fourth of five children, who grew up in Midvale. He met the only love of his life and married Dana Blackburn on September 11, 1975. Together for more than 45 years, they raised two sons, Chad (April), and Chris (Deanna). He has three wonderful grandchildren Isabelle, Allyson, and Evylyn.

Gary loved to be in the outdoors. He spent as much time there as he could fishing, shooting, hunting, and just relaxing with his family. He was quick witted, and tenderhearted at the same time. He was generous and had a lot of compassion for people. Gary was a hard worker, but still made sure he took the time to take his family out camping for the weekend.

Becoming a grandfather was one of the greatest gifts to him, and he adored his grandchildren. He was taken too soon from all of us and will be missed by all who knew him. Gary passed away on November 23, 2020. Services will be privately held. CAUSE OF DEATH, NOT COVID!

Gary is my cousin on my Robinson side. He was a cute little boy and it sounds like a great father.
