Gary died doing what he loved while working at the Richard Petty Exotic Driving Experience at the Walt Disney World Speedway in Orlando, Florida when the driver of a ride-a-long car in which Gary was taking part in as a professional passenger lost control. Prayers go out to the driver as well who survived the accident. … Gary was the definition of the perfect husband, father, son, brother, grandson, cousin, friend, employee and all around model human being. He touched a part of everyone's life he ever met and he will be sorely missed. A friend of Gary's said it best when they said that God needed a personal driver on Sunday and he got the best in Gary Terry.
