Gary Walter Crawford Meloon

Gary Walter Crawford (AKA Gar-Bear and Lil' G) entered into his heavenly home on Saturday, July 22, 2017.  This world lost a beautiful soul who brightened the lives of many with his curls, smile, laugh, and caring heart.  Gary was raised in Orlando and was a graduate of Palm Beach Atlantic University with a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management. As a 5th generation Meloon of Correct Craft, Gary was currently working in the boating industry with his family at Southeast Marine and Sales and was planning to attend the UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management Master's Program in the fall.  Gary leaves to cherish his memory, parents Walter Gary and Ardis Meloon, brother and sister-in-law Nathan and Hannah Meloon, grandparents Walter and Barbara Meloon and William and Sallie Harrar in addition to aunts, uncles, cousins, and numerous friends with whom Gary cared for deeply.  The family will be receiving friends from 3:00-3:45 PM followed by a Celebration of Life Service on Thursday, August 3, 2017 at The First Baptist Church Orlando (Faith Hall), located at 3000 South John Young Parkway, Orlando, Florida, 32805.  In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made in memory of Gary to Liz's Legacy, P.O. Box 155, Windermere, Florida 34787.  Online donations can be made at lizlegacyfoundation.com.  Please visit www.dobbsfuneralhome.com to post comments or memories.
