Our hearts are heavy as we mourn the passing of our friend, Gary O’Neill. His battle with leukemia ended with dignity and in the comfort of his home this morning. Gary served his country in the Marines and spent time in Vietnam . He worked for Marine Drilling for more than 30 years and touched so many with his leadership and great concern for the folks on the rig. His most cherished possession was his family and friends and maybe a tractor or two. Just last week he told me that he felt he was one of the luckiest persons because of all the wonderful family and friends that he had. He really appreciated all the calls and visits that he had received over the last few months. His contributions and caring attitude will be missed by all.

Our dear friend, Gary passed away early this morning. He went peacefully in his sleep at his home in Yoakum. Most of his family had arrived yesterday at his house and they were able to enjoy their time together.
