          "Don’t worry, I am in the arms of Jesus now.  Here are some things I want you all to hear.  I accepted Jesus as my Savior on January 16, 2022, in a small church in my hometown of Lexington called Grace Chapel.  I sat down with my Pastor, Charles Barton, who has been more than a friend.  I want my family and friends to know, I love them and if I ever hurt them, I am truly sorry.  See I loved big, and I never met a stranger in my life.  If I called you buddy or brother/sister, that is how I felt about you.  Know that in the end, we are family.  Please find Jesus.  I loved to fish, hunt, and shoot guns.  I am a good aim.  I loved hanging out with friends and family and riding around with my side chick.  I loved to make people laugh, telling jokes and talking lots of crap.  I enjoyed chicken fights, talking to old timers, and going to work with my Uncle Gary.  I worked as a farm hand and for the City of Lexington for a short time. 

        Gary is preceded in death by his mother, Betty Jean McGehee; his grandparents, Joe Dawson, Bob McGehee, Huck and Trixie Whittington.  Survivors include his #1 fan, his granny who raised him,  Joyce Copas of Lexington; his side chick and girlfriend, Bailee Rader of the home; his uncle, Gary James McGehee and wife, Ruthie of Lexington; his uncle, Bob McGehee and wife, Jill of Dibble; his aunt, Vicky Jenkins and husband, Thorne of Lexington; his dad, Roy Whittington; his brother, Chad Whittington; his sister, Elizabeth Whittington, all of Stratford; his brother, John Killgore and wife, Tabitha of Noble; his extended family, Chris and Trish Rader of Lexington, Sara Rader of Purcell, Jordan Rader of Lexington, Kayla Rios and husband, Will of Norman, Chris Mike Rader of Lexington; his cousins, that were more like siblings and were raised together, Shane McGehee of Lexington, Tammy Henson of Lexington, Kim Frazier of Washington, Michelle Madden of Lexington, Renee Jocelyn of Norman, Shawna Cox of Louisiana, Diana Wallace of Norman; and numerous other relatives; and his fur kids, Sugar and Redneck McGehee.
