Gary Stephen Raines went to be with the Lord on Sept. 29, 2021. He was 67.
He was born on Nov. 29, 1953.
Gary was preceded in death by his father, Warren; mother, Floyce; and three brothers, Richard, John and Shawn Raines; and two grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife, Glenda; two sons, Gary and Steven; and a daughter, Gale Raines; a son-in-law, Michael, and daughter-in-law, Steffanie. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Kyle, Harland and Fred Raines; two brothers, Warren B. Raines and Charles S. Raines; four sisters, Susan Smith, Lelia Johnson, Connie Coatney and Floyce Diane Smith; along with many other relatives.
He was the greatest, loving husband, father and friend. He had the kindest, loving heart anyone could ever ask for. With a love for life and a love for God, he will be greatly missed, always in our hearts and never forgotten.
He took comfort in trusting and believing. John 5:24 mentions we pass from death into life. II Corinthians 5:8, I would rather be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. He’s now singing with the angels before the throne. Rest in Peace.
