Fleet & Warehouse Manager
Gary lived a somewhat nomadic life growing up in the state of Texas eventually ending up in Abilene. He joined the US Air Force in 1980 and for over 20 years traveled the world visiting 13 European, 4 Asian, and 3 Middle Eastern countries as an equipment technician/manager. In this role he maintained mobile equipment such as AC Systems, Diesel and Turbine driven Generators, and Multistage Compressors.
Upon his retirement from the USAF, he spent time as a standby generator and transfer switch PM and service tech covering an area between Austin and Houston. He then entered the world of automated manufacturing where he served as an Equipment Technician, Project Engineering Technician and eventually as the only Technical Training Technician at the facility.
After 17 years in the automated manufacturing business, he made the decision to change course and joined the APS team as our Warehouse and Fleet Manager. He considers his wife, Hilda, of nearly 40 years as the anchor of his accomplishments in life, and the birth of his daughter, Marissa, and his granddaughter, AjaBella, as the defining moments in his life. In his spare time, Gary enjoys traveling and spending time with his family.
