I was born in Abilene, Texas in 1962, and at the age of two weeks old moved to Tyler with my parents, Robbie and Linda Fleet. My entire family were active members of Glenwood Church of Christ for 55 years. I have been married to my wife Brenda for 26 years and we are blessed with three children and six grandchildren. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Abilene Christian University in Banking and Finance and a Master’s Degree from UT Tyler in Interdisciplinary Studies. I used neither of those degrees and taught math, while coaching football, track and baseball for 29 years in TISD. I spent five years at Tyler High and twenty-four years at Tyler Legacy. For over 50 years, my family has bought and sold antiques, setting up at Canton First Monday and other antique shows. My brother Randy and I are now partners in an antique and estate sale company. In 2018, Brenda and I were welcomed to Shiloh with open and loving arms, and we quickly made this our home. We have been blessed beyond words from this congregation and look forward to giving back that love for years to come.
Gary became an elder in 2022.
