Gary Leland Miner
1951 ~ 2013

Gary Leland Miner, was born in Provo, UT on February 28, 1951 to Verl York Miner and Kathleen Madsen Miner. When he was 5, his family moved to Southern California. He grew up in California and graduated from High School and went to college there. He eventually left California when he got a job at a corrugated box plant in Moses Lake, WA, which was a small company at the time. He lived in Moses Lake for 32 years before he moved to Lehi, Utah.

Gary was very active in the Moses Lake community. He sat on the planning board for Spring Festival for many years. He also enjoyed boy scouts, dancing, poetry, running (he was a runner in H.S.), watersports, down hill skiing, biking, hiking, camping, doing community service and spending time with people in general. His most favorite thing to do was Ballroom dancing with his wife, Kathy. They both taught Ballroom dancing, it was one of their many joys.

He married his Eternal Sweetheart and Soul Mate, Kathy on May 28, 2004 and they were later sealed in the Boise, Idaho Temple, May 24, 2008.

Gary was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and held many positions and was so loved by all he served.

Gary developed a Glioblastomamultiforme 2 ½ years ago. Because of the cancer he moved with his sweetheart back to Utah so they could be closer to family. The cancer took his life (too soon) from his loved ones on his birthday, February 28, 2013. Gary was preceded in death by his parents and grandson Braydon.

Together, Kathy and Gary have 7 children. Gary’s two daughters, Ricci Jones and Jamie New and Kathy’s children, Preston (Jessica) Powell, Krystal Powell (Matthew Ahlstrom), Audrey (Shad) Jepsen, Zandra Powell (Eldon Clark), Hyrum Powell. Grandchildren, Cody, Anthony, Tatum, Jazlynn, Ezra, Jenica, Landon, Brinley, and Breckin. Brother Les (Susie) Miner, Sister Gwen (Jim) Grammes.

Gary took very good care of his wife and children, they were his WORLD and he will continue to watch over them from heaven. Gary will be very missed by all who were touched by him. Until we meet again.
