Emery in Crossville, TN. Gary spent his life serving others through his various professions and
dedicated his heart to his wife, children, and beloved grandchildren.
Gary was a man of many talents and he would tell you personally that he got to do everything he
ever wanted to do in his lifetime. Gary was a dairy farmer in Cumberland County, built various
commercial buildings in Cumberland County and surrounding areas, and was a home builder
with his business, Cumberland Mountain Homes LLC., with his son, Gary Emery Ⅱ, until his
passing. While he had various titles throughout his life, being called “Pa” was his favorite. Gary
never met a challenge he didn’t face head on and had countless stories to prove it.

Ann Marsh(Eddie), Jack Emery(Thomas), Adam Gibson(Sarah), and Ryan Gibson(Alesha),
grandchildren, Cheyenne Emery, Jaden Emery, Callye Gibson, Rylee Gibson, Corbin Gibson,
