The Passing of Gary Wayne Avery

Gary Wayne Avery, 57, of St. James City, FL passed away on Wednesday, July 27, 2011. He was born on October 31, 1953 in Patterson, N. J. He is survived by his wife of twenty years, Lois “Lucy” Avery of St. James City, FL, mother Diane Avery of Vero Beach, FL, brothers Al Avery of Greenville, FL, Dan Avery of Delray Beach, FL. A nephew, A.J. Avery of Boynton Beach, FL, a niece Jennifer Avery Whigham and great nephew Cody, Aunt Anita Avery of Elwood Park, N. J. and numerous aunts and uncles. He was preceded in death by his father, Alfred Avery.

Gary was a resident of St. James City for the past twenty years after moving here from Delray Beach, FL. When he lived in Delray Beach he worked for Liquid Ag and was co owner of Avery Brothers.

Gary was best known on the island for working at Island hardware and for repairing boats, boat lifts and davits. Most recently he worked part time at Boat Lift U.S. Gary was known by many as “the man who could fix anything.”

Gary was the Commander of the Sons of the American Legion Post 136 in St. James City, FL. The Legion considers itself a family. Gary was a key member of our family that will, probably no one individual could replace any time soon.

There will be a service to celebrate the life of Gary at the American Legion on Saturday, August 6 at 11am. The Legion will be serving lunch after the service. Please bring a covered dish to pass if possible.

There will be a last farewell to Gary Avery on Sunday, August 7 at 11:30am when boats will leave “Lucy’s Landing,” 3966 Plumosa Drive, St. James City to spread Gary’s ashes. We may have other meeting spots for boats to congregate. Call the American Legion for more information.

In lieu of flowers, Lucy Avery requests that donations be made to the American Legion in Gary’s memory to be put into the “Building Fund,” which Gary was very involved in.

Barry August, Commander
