Gary Lee Conley

Gary Lee Conley, age 57 of Brentwood, Tennessee passed away May 4, 2022.

Gary was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and then lived in Trevor, Wisconsin before moving to Tennessee.

Gary peacefully passed away at home in Brentwood after a courageous battle with cancer.

His son Sean and wife Gloria were at his bedside.

Gary could accomplish anything he set his mind to do. He was skilled with his hands — he could fix anything he wanted to and he had a passion for remodeling his homes.

He loved to drive and work on his GTOs, loved weight lifting which was a passion he passed on to his son Sean who now has made a career with the passion they shared. Gary also loved to grill and ride his 4-wheeler and mini-bike. He spent many years as a baseball coach for Sean’s baseball teams.

Gary was very proud of his firefighter son, Gary, Jr. as well.

Gary and Gloria met when they were 20 years old and spent many days together remodeling homes, driving the GTOs and lately walking the neighborhood and sitting on the front porch drinking coffee and enjoying the views.  

He will be missed more than words can say.

He is preceded in death by his father, Leroy Conley; sister, Sheila Conley; brother, Terry Conley and his beloved rottweiler, Baby.

Gary is survived by his wife of 29 years, Gloria Krawczyk Conley of Brentwood; sons, Gary Lee Jr. (Nina) Conley of Chicago, Illinois and Sean Conley of Brentwood; mother, Fran Conley of Paris, Tennessee; brother, Randy Conley of Franklin; sisters in-law, Ranata (Alan) Dash of Brentwood and Eva (Charly) Sinkovits of Norridge, Illinois; brother in-law, Frank (Shelly) Krawczyk of Chicago, Illinois; nephews, Justin Conley and Trevor Conley.
