MIDWEST CITY, Okla. — Gary Irl Stroud, 71, passed away July 13, 2013.

Gary was born April 11, 1942, in Wichita, Kan., to Irl and Marcella Stroud.

Gary was baptized at the age of 13 at the Sheridan Avenue Church of Christ in Tulsa, Okla. Gary was an example of what a son, husband, father, grandfather and brother should be.

He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Sharon Kay; three sons, Greg Stroud, James Andy Stroud and wife, Deborah and David Stroud; grandchildren, Nick Stroud, Brittany Stroud, Andrea Stroud and Allie Stroud; three sisters, Linda Francisco and husband, Gene, Luci Hilliard and husband, Ronnie and Becky Woodward and husband, Garry; and three sisters-in-law,  Glenna Reding and husband, Herb, Beverly Johnson and Linda Clary and husband, Richard.
