Gary Wade Beth, 49, left his friends and family on Tuesday December 9,2008. Gary was born in Kansas City, Missouri, September 23, 1959, to Jack and Janis Beth.
Gary spent his career in the oil and gas industry with Carter Energy, for whom he worked 20 years. He was the area manager to convenience stores in Southern Missouri and Northern Arkansas, and built a reputation as a good and fair businessman, dedicated to help his customers be successful.
Gary had a love of life and music that was infectious to both his family and friends. He always enjoyed having family and friends with him, wheather it was at the lake with impromptu gatherings on the 'dock' with other 'boat people'; or an evening at a favorite 'water hole' with the boys, and especially at the house that he had just finished building with fiancee, Julie. Gary enjoyed many travel adventures with his friends. He loved doing the planning and then watching it all unfold! The memories made during those times will never be forgotten. For Gary, the verse rang true...Live well, Laugh often and Love much.
Gary's family was the source of great pride. He is survived by his Mother Janis Beth of Forsyth, Mo, his fiancee, Julie Smith Rogersville, his daughters Lindsay Marie Beth and Leslie Anne Beth, and their Mother Sherry Hilles all of Springfield; a brother, Vic Beth, Bonner Springs KS, sisters Brenda Pummill and her husband Pat of Peculiar, MO, and Sue Beth and her partner, Gary Steele of Springfield; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
