Gary Lee Dye, age 64, of Neola, Utah, passed away on June 4, 2021, doing
what he loved.
He was born in Roosevelt, Utah, on December 16, 1956, to Deloss and Eva Malnar Dye. He married the love of his life, Shelley Dye, on April 11, 2014, and they spent 11 wonderful years together.
Gary proudly spent his career in the oil and gas industry, where he led scores of people who went on to become some of his best friends. Gary loved hunting, farming, fishing, ranching, camping, and traveling. He held a deep reverence for the U.S. Constitution and held a high regard for his country. Socializing, traveling, and spending time with family were central in his life (including the occasional arm wrestle). He loved his home and was intrigued by the high lakes and drainages of the Uintas, including the occasional treasure hunt.
Gary is survived by his wife, Shelley Dye, and his four children Tamaran (Jon) Woodland, Colton (Kara) Dye, Truck (Haley) Dye, Taryn (LB) Miller; three stepchildren: Seth Crozier, Clay (Abigail) Crozier, Abby (Garrison) Richens; 10 grandchildren with 2 expecting. He was the 7th of 8 siblings: Deloy (Sue) Dye, LaDell (Mary) Dye, Anne (Dwayn) Paskett, Kyle (Chris) Dye, and Gaylene (Norval) Glines, and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Deloss and Eva Dye, and siblings Mavie Kramp, & Kendall Dye.
