October 10, 1950 ~ May 5, 2024

Born in: Dallas, Texas
Resided in: Fort Worth, Texas

Gary Lynn Jeanes of Fort Worth, Texas, age 73, passed away Sunday, May 5th, 2024, in his home.  Gary was born October 10th, 1950, in Dallas, Texas, to Billy Joe Jeanes and Geraldine Jeanes (Wahle). He grew up in Arlington, Texas and in the late 70s moved to his property in Fort Worth, Texas, where he would later build the home in which he lived for the rest of his life.

Gary spent the early part of his career in the 1970s working at Eddy Williams Man’s Shop, then for Bell Helicopter, and lastly LT Vought where he worked in direct assembly on the MLRS space shuttle. In 1983, Gary decided that he was done working for other employers and opened Jeanes Landscaping and Maintenance, into which he poured his love of art through planting until retirement in 2019. 

He is preceded in death by father Billy Joe Jeanes, mother Geraldine Jeanes, son Tyler Francois Jeanes, and nephew Grant Colton Vardeman. Gary is survived by sisters Terri Day and Sherri Vardeman, brother-in-law Cole Vardeman, children Jessica Jeanes Tielli and Chad Garrett Jeanes, their mother Adele Jeanes, son-in-law Tony Tielli, daughter-in-law Brittany Jeanes, niece Ashley Holbrooks (husband Rusty Holbrooks), nephews Conner and Garrett Vardeman, grandchildren Jackson Tielli, Tyler Jeanes, Evelyn Tielli, and Madelyn Jeanes, and great-niece Reagan Holbrooks. One of Gary’s most defining characteristics was the love he had for his family, and he spent as much of his retired years as possible with his grandchildren.

Memories Timeline


  1. We are so sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. He was very outgoing and was always nice to our family. I always enjoyed bumping into him at the local Walmart and catching up on our families. We’re keeping his family in our hearts and hope your memories of him give you comfort. Love, Pat and Ron

  2. Lord, our beloved Gary is gone now from this early dwelling, and has left behind those who mourn his absence. Grant that we may hold his memory dear, never bitter for what we have lost nor in regret for the past, but always in hope of the eternal Kingdom where you will bring us together again. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

  3. “You’re safely home in the arms of Jesus
    Eternal life, my brother’s found
    The day will come, I know I’ll see you
    That sacred place on that Holy ground

    Go rest high on that mountain
    ‘Cause son, your work on earth is done
    Go to heaven a-shoutin’
    Love for the Father and the Son”

    Love, Mary Lou

  4. To the family of Gary Jeanes, really sorry for the loss of Gary. My mother Claudia Jeanes always loved Gary and his Dad Billy.

  5. I was the new kid at Eddie Williams in 1972 when I first meet Gary.
    I will be grateful for the way he mentored me.
    He would stop by the shop through the years and visit when he had a chance.
    He was always a pleasure to me.
    Gary will be remembered fondly.

  6. Gary was so good to my parents. The night that my Dad passed he brought dinner for everyone. Can’t begin to list all he did for them. So sorry for your loss. Laura Smith. (Red Ryals’s daughter)

  7. I’m so sorry to hear of Mr. Jeanes passing. I attended high school with his daughter, Jessica and he was always a good friend and so good to my grandparents. May God bring peace and comfort to all of his family and friends. God Bless
