Gary Keith Reeves

June 29, 1955 — March 12, 2024

I tried to think what Gary would want to be said about his life, but after thinking about it I decided to give my version. He loved a lot of things and people. His family was the most important of all. His parents his three children and grandchildren. He was so proud of them all. Gary gave a lot of his time and energy to his faith. If you were a Facebook friend you would see his comments reflecting his Christian beliefs almost daily. His energy had no limits. He would hit the road and travel all over the country promoting his products that he believed would help people with their health issues. Put him in a crowd of people give him stage and stand back. Gary was a bright torch that burned fast and bright. I’ve never cared much for clichés but there is one that perfectly fits Gary and his life. He died doing what he loved. On the road in a big city, giving a sales pitch to a crowd and having an expensive steak dinner. He has left an impact on the world that will last for years. Many people were shocked and saddened by his passing. Like most brothers we enjoyed life together we argued and fought over dumb things, but we both always knew we had a special bond and talked almost every day even on his last day of speaking. It will not be long and we will be talking again. See you soon little brother.

"Dad - I was always proud to call you my dad. You were truly one of a kind. You came from humble beginnings, but always had a positive outlook on life. You taught us the importance of caring for others and instilled in us the importance of hard work. I've taken things from you and Popa that I will carry with me forever. Your energy, love of life, family and god is what defined who you are. Dad had a unique ability to connect with people, he listened and understood their needs. He was a sounding board for many on the streets of Phoenix, and would often spend his free time feeding and listening to those who were less fortunate. His kindness and generosity knew no bounds. You were a man of unlimited energy, and passion for life. My girls loved going to grandpas house, and they even had a hard time keeping up. You would send them home up with faces covered in chocolate and ready to fall asleep. Most times we wouldn’t even be out of the neighborhood before they passed out in their car seats. I heard this saying a while back and it puts me at peace now even though you’re gone. It goes a little something like that this: Dad, I want to tell you we will be okay. I want to tell you that the windshield is bigger than your rear view mirror for a reason, because what is in front of you is so much more important than what's behind you. We are proud of the good you did. We are proud of who you were. What's ahead of you is far more important though. Gods kingdom in heaven is the greatest gift we will ever receive and you are there. Yes, the pain is there and we hurt knowing you are not with us anymore. But knowing whats ahead for you gives us peace and comfort. We love you. I love you. My girls love you. You are loved and missed by so many. And we will see you again one day"

- Jesse
