Gary Scott Rickell was born Jan. 21st, 1952 at Fort Bragg, North Carolina to William and Margie Rickell. His father preceded him in death. He is survived by his mother, his older brother, Bill and his sister Patti Glasgow and his brother in law Greg Glasgow of Estes Park, Colorado and also many cousins.
He graduated from Putnam City High School and attended the University of Okla. He lived in Round Rock, Texas and was employed by Toshiba until his illness caused his retirement. We wanted him to move back home so we could be with him and take care of him. We thought he was getting better and had more time, so it was a shock when we lost him.
He was a wonderful son and brother. He had incredible friends he went to school with and they all came a week ago to spend the day with him. He enjoyed all of them so much and appreciated all of the time they traveled to be here. He had great respect for the men he worked with, Scott and Barry, and they did so much for him during his illness. His friend Jeff helped him beyond measure. I will always be in their debt for being there for him. There was a very special lady he went to school with and she was so caring and spent time with him –such a good friend. I told her she was an angel. Our lives are very empty without him but we treasure all the wonderful memories we had with him.
