Feb. 28, 1949-Oct. 28, 2016

Gary Michael Horrell, 67, died Oct. 28, 2016, in Mill Creek, Wash. A long time Alaskan and former resident of Homer, he was born Feb. 28, 1949, in Anchorage.

Gary is survived by daughters Emilie Springer, Jacquelyn Horrell and Nadia Sethi and seven grandchildren; brothers, Don and Greg Horrell, and sister, Connie Ravenel; and many nephews and a niece. He was also grateful for all the time in the last several years of his life spent with Chrissy Crissinger.
