Gary was born on November 6, 1944, in San Diego, CA, the son of the late Enos and Fleta (Combs) Marsh. He graduated from Colorado State University, Fort Collins, and the Lliff School of Theology for Seminary, where he met his wife, Jean L. Holt. They later moved to New England to raise their family.
