Mrs. Marie Gay passed away on March 10, 2016 at the age of 95, but her legacy will live on with everyone that she touched. She was an excellent role model for other women interested in owning their own business, and she helped supply the vital need of vehicle transportation and service to the Dickinson and Houston area communities. In fact, it is still possible today to see thousands of cars around the metro area that bear the Gay nameplate. She also built a great place to work that has allowed hundreds of her employees to provide for their families over the last 68 years. Marie Gay is greatly loved, and she will be dearly missed by her family, friends, and employees.
Marie Gay and her husband Carl started their career together in the early 1940's. They began traveling the country with their magazine business and brought their crew of salespeople along to help. After returning to the Dickinson, Texas area in 1948, Marie and Carl created Gay Pontiac on Highway 3. In the 1960s, they moved the store's location to the newly built Gulf Freeway where their business began to flourish. During the entire 68 years that the store has been in operation, it has received numerous awards for setting sales records, including the prestigious General Motors Master Dealer Award. Gay Pontiac was one of only five dealerships nationwide to receive this honor 25 years in a row.
