Gary Willard Boone, 74, was born November 21, 1945 and passed away on July 21, 2020 from complications from a fall.

He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Willard and Isabelle Boone and brother, Roger Boone.
Gary is a graduate of Crittenden County High School and ITT Technical Institute in Evansville, Indiana where he was an instructor after graduation. During his career he worked at Lockheed Missiles & Science Company, Anaconda Aluminum, Arco Metals, KBI Alloys and retired from Cabot Corporation where he was Product Manager at time of retirement.
He always said his real retirement was to just spend his time fishing.
Gary was a member of the American Society of Quality Control, American Society of Metals, The Aluminum Association, and American Foundrymens Society. He was honored by several Metallurgical Groups during his career and has received 5 US Patents related to Master Alloys for the Aluminum Industry.
His wish was to be cremated and to have a small graveside service.
Due to the restrictions of Covid19, the family are honoring his wishes. Services are scheduled for 1 PM Saturday August 8, 2020 at Mapleview Cemetery in Marion, KY.
Donations may be sent to St. Jude's Hospital. Gary felt that although he loved flowers, they die quickly and even a small donation could help save a child's life. Your prayers for the family will be very welcome.
Gilbert Funeral Home in Marion, KY is in charge of local arrangements.
