Gary Lee Hoke, 62, of Newport, left this world early in the morning on Wednesday, July 1, 2015.
Gary was a kind and gentle man who loved the outdoors, a good book, traditional skills and conversation with dear friends. He was a compassionate man whose greatest joy was helping others.
He was born Fen. 11, 1953, in Baltimore, Md. He was a 1971 graduate of East Pennsboro High School and spent his life as a technician in health-related fields. He retired from Moffit Heart Association.
Gary was the son of Velma Hoke and the late S. Bruce Hoke, of West Fairview. In addition to his mother, he is survived by a brother, Kirby, of Enola, and a sister, Lisa (Randy) Kelsey, of rural Indiana, as well as ten nieces and nephews.
Gary held great respect for the work of Bethesda Mission. Memorial contributions can be made to them in his honor.
The family will hold a private service at a later date.
