Peter Gary Ferrero, born April 1, 1952, passed away at his home on Monday, August 23, 2021. Gary was born in Rock Springs, Wyoming and grew up amongst family and friends. He attended High School in his hometown, followed by the University of Wyoming where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, then moving to Provo, Utah in 1974 to earn a degree from the J. Reuben Clark School of Law at Brigham Young University in 1977. It was here that he met his wife, Elnora (Ellie); they had just celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary a few weeks earlier.\n\nGary and Ellie moved from Provo to Murray, Utah in 1982 where Gary worked as an attorney - first in private practice and then as part of the Utah Bar Association. Gary also was elected and re-elected twice as a Murray City Councilman, serving from 1988-1998. He then was sworn in as the Murray City Justice Court Judge, a position he served in until 2008. Gary would later return to private practice until he was able to start his own business as a gunsmith and armorer. His legal and government backgrounds were fueled by and contributed to a deep love for the United States, its armed forces, and law enforcement agencies, and Gary was respectfully politically active his entire life.\n\nGary was an avid reader and photographer. Early in his life he raced motorcycles, and as an adult fulfilled a lifelong dream by buying his own Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Even when not riding, he was rarely seen without one of his many black Harley-Davidson T-Shirts. He was skilled with computers, frequently building and upgrading his creations while keeping up with technological advances. He also loved model rockets and airplanes, building his own creations over the years.\nAs much as he loved his hobbies, he loved his family more. He was a very dedicated and loving husband, father, and grandfather. He loved taking vacations with his wife, going together on business vacations to Las Vegas, San Diego, Hawaii, and Sun Valley. He also loved to plan family vacations, taking trips to Disneyland, Disneyworld, Universal Studios, Six Flags, and Lagoon as well as visiting his son’s mission areas in San Bernardino, California and Santiago, Chile, and his daughter’s family in Virginia. He loved having a timeshare week in Park City every year and having the entire family come up for swimming, fun, and at least one family dinner.\n\nGary is survived by his wife Elnora Page Wilkins Ferrero, his children Corianne (Cody) Robinson, Spencer (Lindsay Schneider), and Adam (Lynsie Jensen) and his grandchildren Gabrielle, Ashton, Zack, Jamison, Bianca, Taylor, and Jarom. He was preceded in death by his parents Pete and Mary.\n\nA viewing will take place on Friday, August 27, 2021 from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints chapel located at 5555 South 700 West in Murray, Utah.\n\nFuneral services will be held Saturday, August 28, 2021 at 11:00 am, with a viewing prior to the service from 10:00-10:45 am at the same location. Following the services, Gary will have his grave dedicated and be buried at Elysian Burial Gardens located at 1075 East 4580 South in Salt Lake City, Utah.\n\nIf desired, flowers can be sent in care of Jenkins-Soffe Funeral Home at 4760 S.
