Gary H. Silvers, Sr.\nElmira, NY\nAge 71 passed away peacefully on October 19, 2021. He parted this world to be with his Lord, parents Coy and Tiny and brother Roy Silvers. Survived by daughter Carol Pieklik (Christian) and her mother MaryRose (Magno) Bannister. The mother of his children, Marcy Russell.

Gary was co-owner of Silvers' Brothers Trucking with his brother Roy, operating a successful business for many years during the 1970s. During the mid-80's he began his career at Elmira Correctional Facility and retired in 2012. He loved hunting, fishing, and building just about anything you could imagine. During the summer months you'd most likely find him sitting behind the wheel of his boat pulling family and friends while they skied or rode the tube. He loved his family dearly and reveled in visiting, spending time and being a vital part of their lives. With all his family, friends and acquaintances, he made sure he was an example of integrity and honesty and found great joy in helping and watching his children grow into adulthood. His compassion for others and willingness to listen made him a man that was respected and loved by everyone. A special thanks to Susan Silvers and Stephanie McDonald for the excellent care given to Gary in the last years of his life. Thank you also, to Dr. Fucito, Dr. Pearly and CareFirst. The family will welcome relatives and friends to Sullivan's Funeral Home, 365 E. Franklin St., at Rt. 13, Horseheads, NY on Sunday, October 24, 2021 from 11-12PM.
