Gaynor, Betty, and his son, Todd McCord, made their home in Quitman, TX in 1968. Gaynor was a carpenter, home builder and cabinet maker. At one time, he was also a member of the Quitman Volunteer Fire Department (1970s). He became a Lifelong member of the Parent Teacher Association in 1977. He coached Little League Baseball, too.
