Gary Eller

September 9, 1958 — October 18, 2022


Gary Lynn Eller, son of George & Lottie Eller was called home on October 18, 2022. Born in Pampa, TX on September 9, 1958, Gary grew up in Panhandle where he eventually raised his own family, established Panhandle Welding & Fabrication, was a proud member of the Cherokee Nation, took pride in cultivating the earth through ranching, and was always there to lend a helping hand to his neighbors. In his younger years he in enjoyed motocross, bronc riding, team roping, fishing, country western dancing and doing all the things good ole country boys like to do.

Once, he met Becky, his wife of 30 years, everything changed though his ornery side never quite went away. Gary settled down to raise his two daughters Shannon & Gennifer, doing his best to instill family oriented & hardworking values as well as kind hearts, strong minds, and a good sense of humor. All in all Gary was a hardworking, strong willed, kind & loving, God fearing, salt of the earth kind of man.

He is preceded in death by his parents George & Lottie Eller, his older sister Georganna Eller, and his uncle Ray Eller.

Gary is survived by his wife Rebecca Eller, his daughters Shannon Eller of Round Rock, TX and Gennifer Eller of Panhandle, his step-son Michael Caldwell & his wife Libby of Smithville, TX and his two grandchildren Rose & Alex Caldwell.
