Gary Dale Pa­trick Sr., 65, of Ben­ton, passed away July 19. He was born Nov. 19, 1953, in Arkadel­phia, to the late Ardell Autry and Goldie (Bradshaw) Pa­trick.

Gary was a strong, kind-hearted man. He would do any­thing for any­one and was will­ing to give the shirt off his own back. He loved an­i­mals and took in and fed every stray an­i­mal he found.

He en­joyed playing pool and spend­ing time out­doors hunt­ing, fish­ing and rac­ing four-wheel­ers, mo­tor­cy­cles and cars. Fam­ily was spe­cial to Gary and he loved spend­ing time with them.
