Gary was born April 30, 1952 in Yankton, South Dakota to Emil and Clara (Hale) Caba.  He grew up in Tabor, South Dakota and graduated from Tabor High School in 1970. He then worked for the state of South Dakota on a survey crew. On February 28, 1973, Gary married Debbie Vaith in Tabor. After their marriage, they lived in Pierre, SD for a year and then moved to Yankton. Gary worked as an installer for Midwest Cabinets for several years and then as a finish carpenter for Jim Tramp Construction for around 30 years until his health forced him to retire. He was an excellent carpenter who took great pride in his work. Gary was also an avid sports fan and enjoyed going to many sporting events, especially to watch his children and grandchildren. He loved life and always looked forward to vacations with his family and friends.

Gary is survived by his wife, Debbie Caba of Yankton; two children, Brian (Pam) Caba of Plattsmouth, NE and Amy Caba of Sioux Falls, SD; four grandchildren: Taylor, MacKenzie, Lyndsey and Tanner of Plattsmouth; two brothers, Bob (Karen) Caba of Tabor and Tom (Catherine) Caba of Mound, MN; sister-in-law, Norma (Caba) Reining and her husband, Larry, of Tabor; and several nieces and nephews.

Gary was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Eugene Caba.
