November 1, 1960-June 10, 2019
EAST MOLINE — Gary Alan passed away June 10, 2019. It was then that heaven opened the door for this sweet, kind, loving soul. He was born in Princeton, Ill., on Nov. 1, 1960, to Betty Anne Cyphers Pierce and Virden R Christiansen.
A celebration of Gary's life will be noon-3 p.m. Sunday, June 30, at the East Moline American Legion. Quad Cities Cremation Center is assisting the family with arrangements.
He attended East Moline and Silvis schools. He graduated from Air Conditioning & Refrigeration school through Black Hawk College.
He was a jack of all trades, could fix anything. He is survived by his mother, Betty Pierce; siblings, Tony Christiansen, East Moline, Tami Christiansen, of Arizona, and Rae Anne Daily, of Davenport. Gary has a son, Brad, and a daughter, Lakin. Gary also leaves behind his two stepdaughters Shanon and Shala in Georgia. Also his stepchildren, Angie, of Bettendorf, and Shawn, of Milan. He also leaves behind his niece, Amanda, and his nephew, Ian.
His dog, Lucy, will be lost without him, but is being well taken care of.
He loved fishing, rock and roll music, riding his bike down to the river; we are sure he is riding his Harley soft tail in heaven, with his wife, Lori, on the back jamming some Skynrd.
