Gary Owen, founder of Owen Security Solutions, worked on the family dairy farm until he was 18 years old. Graduating from Calhoun High School in 1967, Gary joined the Marine Corps, until 1973. During that time, he also worked for Irvin Ostuw at Crown Craft from 1971-1972, where he was mentored, learning valuable business principles. Gary started several businesses in the early 1970's, including an energy management conservation company, but eventually dissolved those to focus solely on the security company that he started in 1973 called Owen Detectron; he incorporated the company in the early 1980's as Owen Detectron, Inc.
