Gary Bodkin, 67, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, September 8, 2019.

Born on July 16, 1952, in Cambridge, NY, he was the son of Elsie (Kilburn) Bodkin and the late J. Stanley Bodkin.

On September 29, 1973, he married Terry Pollock, and the two remained inseparable until her passing on August 19, 2019.

Gary worked locally as a farm hand and then with his father as a contractor until Gary and Terry moved to Montana in the late 1970s. While there he worked at a lumberyard and feed mill as well as a lumberjack. Upon their return to Cossayuna nine years later he then started and operated GT Bodkin Construction, where Gary specialized in roofing of all types for over 40 years. In his earlier years, Gary was a member of the Cossayuna Fire Department. He was the current President of North Country Search and Rescue Team.

Together, Gary and Terry loved to travel. They could often be found cruising the Caribbean and also journeyed to Hawaii. In addition, they loved camping, spending time with family and friends also the annual summer fireworks party. Gary loved fishing and hunting, especially for elk.

Left to cherish his memory include his mother, Elsie Bodkin; his brother, Randy Bodkin and his wife, Becky; his sisters, Lynn Thomas and husband Donald and Laura Stewart and husband Dave, his sister-in-law, Kathy Snow and husband Jeff, his special nephew, Jason Pollock and his son Colvin who knew him as β€œPapa”, several nieces, nephews, cousins, as well as his treasured canine companions, Maggie, Sapphire, Bailey, Daisy, Noah John and Mandy. He also left behind many lifelong friends.

Friends may call on Monday Sept. 16th from 4:00pm to 6:00 pm. at the M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 123 Main Street, Argyle, NY 12809. A Memorial Service will follow the calling hours at the funeral home with the Rev. Sandra Spaulding of the Lakeville Baptist Church officiating.

Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family.
