Gary M. Scarsbrook

Gary M. Scarsbrook, 69, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, May 16th, 2022. Gary was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, on August 20th, 1952. His loving parents, Florence and Donald, preceded him in death. Gary is survived by his beautiful wife and high school sweetheart, Barbara, his son Jeff and husband Jeremy, daughter Elisabeth and husband Chris, his grandchildren Aidan, Isabelle, Austin, Nicholas, Caleb, and his sister Donna, and a large extended and loving family.

Gary’s mother, Florence, moved the family to Florida in 1958, where he was raised, met Barbara, and subsequently started his family. As a small business owner, he was an active and engaged member of every community he served. He was a past president of the Seminole Chamber of Commerce, a member of Pasco Leadership, past chairman of the West Pasco Ambassador’s Club, and involved in numerous community networking groups throughout Pasco and Pinellas Counties. Before moving to Odessa, Gary was an active member and volunteer with the First United Methodist Church of Clearwater.

Gary was an avid outdoorsman, cycled frequently, and enjoyed his beloved German Shepherds, Keno and Mescha. Some of Gary’s many passions are spending time with his beloved grandkids, Formula One racing, attending the Sebring 500 annually, amateur photography, woodworking, home improvement projects, and creating hand-made furniture pieces for his grandchildren.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, June 4th at 10:00 a.m. at Michels and Lundquist Funeral Home (5228 Trouble Creek Road, New Port Richey, Florida).

    Gary was an awesome man. He loved Barbara and his family so much. I remember the beautiful jewelry he would surprise Barbara with and how sparkling, in and out, her cars were always kept. The last time I saw Gary he made dinner for us. I learned at his memorial the true difference he made in so many lives. He will be missed. Hugs to Barbara, Jeff and Beth and all of his family.

    You were a part of our CVS Family!!! The days you were in our store, was always positive. I enjoyed talking to you about everything under the sun- from your car, to how proud you were of your grandkids, to your new furbaby, to your cycling..... You were the "family man" all around. My thoughts are with them as they go through their loss. I know he is still with you all.

    I’m sorry for the loss of your husband and your dad Gary Scarsbrook. I’ve known Barb my entire life. I only had a handful of opportunities to spend time with Gary. One of my favorite memories was that he allowed me to sit in his corvette for a drive around his neighborhood and than he asked me would I like to take the wheel so I got to drive it around his neighborhood while he was the passenger. He will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him and the few he spent even more time with. I’m so honored I got to meet and spend time with you throughout my life. My heart goes out to barb and the rest of the Scarsbrook family.
