Gary Alan Holmes, 75 lost his 3-month battle with Thyroid cancer on Friday 11/18/2022. He was looking forward to going to heaven to be with his brother, Joel and his dog Yipp. Gary was born in Jackson, Michigan and moved to Fort Myers, Florida in 1985. He married Sandra Ann Holmes (Doupe-Little) in 2003. The two of them retired in 2011 and moved to Ocala.

Gary’s love of cats encouraged him to become a foster parent to young kittens from our local animal shelter, that were too small for adoption. He also loved his Harley Davidson and rode every opportunity he could.

He is survived by his wife, Sandra and 4 step sons, Curtis, Bradley (Linda), Richard and Reuben Doupe. He also has 5 grandchildren, Michael, Lanie, Macy, Sadie and Olivia. He is also survived by his sister-in-law, Eileen Holmes, his nephews’ Jay, Jeffery and Michael and his niece Tammy, great-nephews, David, Alex, Jake and Zachery.

We greatly miss Gary but are relieved that he is no longer suffering from the cancer pain. Gary, until we meet again, Love forever and always.
