Shingler, Gary Maurice, 75, Warriors Mark, PA., died peacefully on November 3, 2017, with his faithful dog, Janey, lying at his feet. He was born in Johnstown, PA., to the late Maurice “Rudy” O. and Vivian (Tomb) Shingler. Preceded in death by step-father, Al Stoffel and brother-in-law, Dennis Manges. Survived by wife, Mary (Johnston) Shingler; son Drew N. Shingler (Jennifer); two grandchildren, John and Jacklyn Shingler, Warsaw, IN; two brothers, Ronald Shingler (Carole), Gainsville, VA.; Arthur Shingler (Joyce), Woodbridge, VA.; sister, Gail Ochoa, Antioch, CA; three nephews and two nieces; his 94 year old aunt, Winona Mullis, Greenwich, CT.; along with numerous cousins. Also survived by his first wife, Judy Manges, two stepdaughters, four step-grandchildren, and three sisters-in-law. Gary graduated from Johnstown High School in 1960 and was a member of the 1958 JHS Class AA W.P.I.A.L. Champion football team. He also set the PA. State shotput record in his HS Senior year. Gary graduated from Penn State University with a BS in Restaurant, Hospitality, and Institutional Management. He began his professional career with Marriott in Washington, D.C. He earned an MBA from Michigan State University and was a major contributor to the nation’s first State Food Handling Course while he was at Henry Ford Community College. Gary was Director of the university-wide food services at the University of Louisville, KY., and Transylvania University, TN. He was an Associate Professor in Multi-Unit Restaurant Management at Purdue University, IN. In 1999, Gary’s lifelong dream came true when he opened “Hubcap Mary’s Barbeque” in Warriors Mark, PA. He greeted everyone with a broad smile and a cheerful, “Welcome To Heaven!” Gary was generous with both his knowledge and the restaurant’s serving sizes. Customers quickly became his friends. Gary had three lifetime passions: football (both high school and Penn State); food (especially the tastes and flavors, thanks to his golden palate); and research, restaurant efficiency, and customer service. He thrived searching for that perfect recipe. Gary carried on his father’s interest of hunting, reloading, and guns. Friends will be received April 28 from 12 p.m. until time of service at 2 p.m. at Hindman Funeral Homes & Crematory, Inc., 1521 Frankstown Rd, Johnstown PA 15902. Rev. Eric Shafer, officiating. Memorial contributions may be made in Gary’s name to your local food bank.
