Nothing is known about Gary's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he had a wife and son.
At some point in the apocalypse, Gary joined a community in Omaha with his wife and son.
After encountering a walker at the Blaze of Glory, Silas has a flashback to fighting with his father, violently beating and choking him and slamming Gary's head against the floor. While talking with Iris, Silas has another flashback to the fight and staring at his blood-covered hands and he tells Iris that what he's afraid of is himself.
As he brutally beats a walker to death, Silas has a flashback to violently beating Gary who is carried out by a paramedic on a gurney, covered in bloody sheet as Silas stares at his bloody hands. As Silas beats the walker, he remembers people calling him a monster who should be in jail, saying that Silas' own mother had testified against him.
In the present, Silas confirms that his father has died, and asks Iris if she believes he killed him. Iris doesn't answer, saying that it doesn't matter.
In a flashback, Gary sits at the dinner table with Silas and his wife, stating that the guys at the power plant intend to relax power rationing for the holidays. Gary pours some alcohol into his drink and suggests to his son that tomorrow he can take Silas to the bazar to pick out a gift for his mother. Listening to music, Silas ignores his father who yanks the headphones off.
In another flashback, Silas sits amongst the debris of a fight with he hears Gary coughing. Silas rushes to Gary's side whose face is badly beaten and who has a bleeding wound in his side. As he kneels in front of Gary, Silas remembers his father shouting at him, accusing him of being a pig and throwing a dish at his son. Gary violently slams his son against a wall and strangles him, yelling that he is going to teach Silas a lesson. Silas grabs a family picture and smashes his father in the face with it, beating him a few times across the face and jabbing him in the stomach, causing that to bleed as well. Fed up with the abuse, Silas snaps and violently beats Gary on the floor.
A knock at the door snaps Silas out of his memories. When Silas returns, Gary is gone. Looking at the broken picture frame, Silas remembers happier times with his father. Silas finds a bloody handprint on the bathroom door and the medicine cabinet a mess. Hearing noises from upstairs, Silas follows them and finds his father, back turned to him. Silas tearfully states that he didn't intend to hurt Gary and had just wanted him to stop. Gary turns around and is revealed to have died of his injuries and reanimated. Horrified, Silas grabs a lamp and shoves Gary away several times before retreating to his bedroom and locking himself in.
As Gary is outside of his door, Silas puts on loud music and remembers his father placing a boombox playing loud music on the floor during happier times and the two laying down together as Gary shows his son what a real concert sounded like in better times. Crying, Silas watches Gary pounding on the door and remembers their fight as he continues to listen to the music, plugging in his headphones and turning up the volume all of the way and not noticing Gary moving away.
After the music ends, Silas notices a lack of noise from outside of his room and his mother screaming, under attack by Gary. Silas yanks Gary off of his mother, yelling at her to get out of the house. Desperately struggling with his father, Silas manages to knock Gary to the ground and slams his head into the floor six times, putting him down for good.
In the present, Felix mentions that Gary's death was ruled to be self-defense which is why Silas never went to prison for it. Silas tells Felix that Gary could never remember what happened when he blacked out, just like Silas. Silas later admits to Iris that he really did kill his father, along with supposedly killing Percy and Tony.

After Gary gets abusive towards his son, slamming him against a wall and strangling him, Silas grabs a picture frame, smashing Gary in the face and accidentally slicing his stomach before beating him with his bare fists several times.
