He was raised in the town of Cumberland,WI. Gary was a very active youth, as he was in football, baseball, basketball, track, and was a very well rounded wrestling star at Cumberland Schools.

In 1983 Gary and Ione moved to Luck and opened a Bar & Liquor store, DeNucci’s 35 Villa. They brought in big bands, large crowds, and great times. They left unforgettable memories forever implanted in Northern Wisconsin. He wasn’t only running a business, he was also building a home in Mckinley Township. It was here that he and Ione raised their three children. Gary was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to spend time in the woods and on the lake with his family and friends of his deer camp.
