Gary Dennis Fleming, 73, of Fairmont, passed away on Tuesday (May 10, 2016) at Louis A. Johnson Veterans Administration Medical Center in Clarksburg.
He was born in Monongah, on Nov. 27, 1942, a son of the late Earl Darius Fleming and Carol Morris Fleming.
Gary retired from the Times West Virginian newspaper after 40 years of service in the printing department. Gary was a graduate of Monongah High School. He proudly served his country in the United States Marines Corps during the Vietnam War.

McClure of Charleston and Susan Gaus and her husband Ronald of Fairmont; two brothers-in-law, David Bartholow of Monongah and Roger Bartholow and his wife Netty of Oklahoma; and several nieces and nephews, including a special nephew, Kenneth Nicholson.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Carol Diane Tobin and her husband Mel; a brother, Donald Earl Fleming; two brothers-in-law, Kenneth Nicholson and James R. Bartholow; a sister-in-law, Susie Stevens Fleming; and his mother-in-law, Thelma Matthews Bartholow.
