In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Gared is past fifty and has lost both ears, his little finger and three toes to frostbite. He has been on the Wall for over forty years.

Some of Gared and Will's roles have been switched around from the books; in the book it is Gared who escapes and is executed for desertion. 

In the book, Theon kicks Gared's severed head and laughs. Jon disapproves of that.
