Gary Pfeiffer

Gary Pfeiffer, 69 of Amarillo Texas passed away on June 13, 2022. According to Gary’s wishes, there will be no memorial services at this time.

Gary was born April 2, 1953, to Alvin and Wanda Pfeiffer in Amarillo Texas. He graduated from Palo Duro High School in 1971. He retired from BNSF Railroad as a Locomotive Engineer after 40 years of service.

He was loved by many for his free spirit, quick wit and true love of nature, probably most comfortable around a campfire at his Dead Horse Ranch. Gary was generous to a fault and would do absolutely anything for his loved ones, he was the caretaker of our family. Our lives are richer for knowing and loving him. His absence will leave a huge void in our lives.

He was preceded in death by a beloved daughter, Melani Pfeiffer in 1980, and his parents in 2003 and 2006.

Those left to cherish his memory are Deborah, his wife of 27 years; sons Shaun of Edinboro, PA, Keenan and wife Kailyn of Amarillo; three daughters Jenna Gracey and Keeli Pfeiffer of Colorado and Monica Wing of Lubbock, Texas; a much-loved grandson, Griffin Pfeiffer of Houston, Texas; and two sisters Sharon Grant and husband Bill, and Kim Beezley and husband David, all of Amarillo; numerous nieces and nephews, and not to forget his loyal four-legged companion, Bella.

The family would like to thank BSA Hospice for their care and compassion.
