Gary Dwayne Gilbert

Gary Dwayne Gilbert Jr. known to his friends and family as “Chooch” passed from this life on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at the age of 49 years.
Chooch was born on November 13, 1970, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was the oldest child to Gary Dwayne and Glenda Kay (Fairbanks) Gilbert. Chooch was initially raised in the Wild Horse area of Osage County. At the age of four he moved with his family to Cleveland where he began his education later graduating from Cleveland High School with the Class of 1989. Following high school, he worked at Homeland and has also worked as a cowboy for many years. He has mostly drove a truck for the majority of his time, driving throughout the United States as an over the road trucker and was currently employed with ME3 driving a bobtail.
Chooch loved being outdoors. Especially coon hunting, fishing, breaking horses and riding bulls. He loved his family and being around them whenever possible. He enjoyed being a dad and pawpaw. Entertaining was something you could always count on from Chooch. Being silly or telling the numerous jokes or poking fun at those around him. He liked anything country and watching the television shows Heartland and Yellowstone. Chooch took the scripture literal whenever possible; “This is the day the Lord has made: let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Chooch was preceded in death by his father Dwayne Gilbert and a son Douglas.
