The social distancing response to the threat of COVID-19 spread has caused the family of former Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary to cancel the visitation and funeral planned for Gary. Gary died Friday at Wilson N. Jones Regional Medical Center.


Keith Gary’s son, Judge Brian Gary said the family has cancelled both the family visitation which was set for Tuesday and the funeral which was set for Wednesday.


Brian Gary said the family plans to hold a public memorial service for the long-time sheriff once the threat of COVID-19 spread has dissipated.
