Gary Ray Phelps

1945 - 2021
Gary Ray Phelps, age 76, entered this life on July 2, 1945 in Monticello, Kentucky. He was the loving son of the late Roscoe and Maxine (Crabtree) Phelps.

Gary worked for Smith Packing as a Master Butcher in the 70’s. Eventually he became a carpenter and focused on siding and window installation. He was a devoted fisherman and hunter. Gary enjoyed traveling and his favorite fishing hole was in Okeechobee, Florida. During his leisure time, Gary loved sitting at His & Hers with family and friends appreciating his company and coffee. He loved western movies and could recite every single word. Gary was an avid Colts fan and often watched games with his “Little Brother” Ronnie and his favorite nephew Michael. He relished to tell stories, each time he told the story it became slightly more amplified and ending with his big belly laughs and ear to ear smiles! Gary could be found riding his Honda motorcycle or hunting with his brother for fun. He always made his grandchildren, Megan, Brittany and Kaylee feel special by calling them “Sugarbear”. Gary enjoyed family gatherings, catching up with friends and gardening vegetables. He was the hardest working, kind, funny and determined man who never gave up.

Gary passed away on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. His loss is very significant, and he will be deeply missed.

He will be missed by his children, Gary Keith Phelps, Christopher Ray Phelps and Kimberly Dawn Phelps; his brother, Ronnie Phelps; his many grandchildren, Megan and Brittany Plotz, Kaylee and Jakob Hope, Chelsea, Brian, Jessica, Keely, Nicolas and Courtney Phelps, Brittany Holmes and Brandon Gillespie; and his great grandchildren, Kaylin, Levi and Raegan Hawn, Maleah, Aspen and Daniel Trainor, Jordan, Joseph and Brooklyn Phelps, Brayden Shane and Chrystal Waggoner. In addition to his parents, Gary was preceded in death by his sisters, Joann Miller and Brenda Anness.
