Gary Epper (December 31, 1944 - December 1, 2007 in Los Angeles, California) was an American stunt performer and coordinator and occasional actor. Part of a major stunt family dynasty in Hollywood, he was the son of John Epper, the brother of fellow Star Trek stuntmen Tony Epper and Andy Epper and stuntwoman Jeannie Epper.
