Gale was born March 7, 1961, in Sidney, Nebraska to Harry and Emmaline (Teeter) Garner. He grew up on a dairy farm near Sidney and graduated from Sidney High School. Gale milked cows on the family farm and worked odd jobs on other farms following high school.
He married Tylene Rae Black on January 31, 1993, and the couple welcomed three children: Katrina, Cole, and Emmalee. The family lived in North Platte for some time and later made their home in Tryon for eleven years. They moved to Scottsbluff in 2021 when Gale’s health declined.
Gale was a talented welder and perfected his skills on various welding projects over the years. He enjoyed being outdoors, hunting and fishing with the boys. He liked cooking and was a very good chef, however, clean-up duties were not his specialty!
Making friends and meeting people came easy to Gale. He never met a stranger and had a heart of gold, helping anyone in any way possible. His easy-going personality was adored by many. He delighted in bringing smiles to the faces of his family and friends with his jokes and orneriness.
