He attended East Moline and Silvis Schools. He graduated from Air Conditioning & Refrigeration school through Black Hawk College.
He was a jack of all trades, could fix anything. He is survived by his mother Betty Pierce; siblings Tony Christiansen, East Moline, Tami Christiansen of AZ, and Rae Anne Daily of Davenport. Gary has a son Brad and a daughter Lakin. Gary also leaves behind his two step-daughters Shanon and Shala in Georgia. Also his step children Angie of Bettendorf and Shawn of Milan. He also leaves behind his niece Amanda and his nephew Ian.
His dog Lucy will be lost without him, but is being well taken care of.
He loved fishing, rock and roll music, riding his bike down to the river, we are sure he is riding his Harley soft tail in heaven, with his wife Lori on the back jamming some Skynrd.
