GARY WAYSACK Beloved father, son, brother, uncle and friend, Gary Stephen Waysack, 57, of Las Vegas, passed away Jan. 31, 2014. He was born Feb. 25, 1956, in Cleveland, to his parents, James Oliver Waysack Sr. and Agnes Marie Sefcik. He graduated high school in Northfield, Ohio, and went on to graduate from cosmetology school. At age 24, he moved to Las Vegas, and opened his first salon with his sister, Linda, and brother-in-law, Anthony. Over the next 30 years, he worked diligently to expand his business and opened five salons and a beauty school. He put his heart and great creative talents into this work, wanting to bring people beauty, joy and comfort. His motto was "find something you love to do and you will never work a day in your life." Gary loved and cherished family above all. He was a devoted father and his children were the light, love and passion of his life. He had a youthful spirit, always creative and inventive with a positive outlook. He loved uplifting everyone around him. He enjoyed a special connection with nature and all of its creatures. He was kind-hearted, nurturing and cared deeply for his many pets. Gary was adventurous and loved to hike in particular. He was especially proud of having climbed Mount Whitney, the highest peak in North America. He was a generous person, sponsoring the Las Vegas Marathon, and donating to the Smith Center, Breast Cancer Foundation, Three Square and the Children's Heart Foundation. He is survived by his children, Olivia Marie Waysack and Gary Steven Waysack Jr.; siblings, James Waysack Jr., Linda (Anthony) Pusateri, Robert (Pam) Waysack and Sandra Lee Mulhorn; 11 nieces and nephews; and many dear friends. We miss him beyond words and will hold him lovingly in our hearts. There will be a memorial Mass in his honor at 11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, with a celebration of life following noon-2 p.m., both at Christ the King Catholic Church, 4925 S. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas.
