Gary Frey, age 73, of Rocky Glen section of Moosic, passed away Saturday morning at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Wilkes Barre, after an illness. He is survived by his best friend and beloved wife of 52 years Rose Marie (Sterling) Frey.
Born on April 10, 1948, and son of the late Alfred and Myrtle( Dawes) Frey, Gary was educated at Moosic High School before proudly serving in the US National Guard. He was an active member of the American Legion Post #604 of Moosic. He was employed at Scranton Talk before working for Sterling Service as a repair technician. Upon its closure, he worked at American Home Health Care, prior to his retirement.
