Gary Lee Cummings of Akron, Ohio, passed away at the age of 62 on November 30, 2020.  He was born April 22, 1958 in Akron, Ohio.  And the world was forever changed.

Gary was a man who did not use flowery language and was straight forward.  He held tightly to his beliefs and had a unique sense of humor and a sharp wit (Lord, forgive him).  Those who knew Gary, knew this was just him. With that being said, he loved his children and grandchildren and enjoyed the simple pleasures of life.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Denzil and Sylvia Cummings.

Gary leaves an indelible mark on those who survive; son, Chris; daughter, Emily; eight grandchildren; brother Rick (Jannie) Cummings; along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Gary’s wish was for a private Memorial Service and Interment to take place at a later date.

Hecker-Patron Funeral Home had the privilege of assisting Gary’s family during this delicate time and was entrusted with his care.
