    I met Gary almost 40 years ago when we were in college, and I referred him to CompuServe after I started working there! I’m so sorry to hear of his passing, he was one of the funniest….and smartest people I’ve ever known. I know he will be missed by his friends and family, there was no one else like him! He was a “good guy” and we were lucky to have known him!

    I had the privilege of working with Gary several years ago at CompuServe and I was blessed with that opportunity. He was a pleasure to work with and was admired for the general concern he had for everyone who came in contact with him. He will be missed.

  15. Jeff & Kris Garren says:

    Gary (along with Janet Benner) were the first two faces I met at CPS back in 1986 when I interviewed for a NCC position. Gary found out I had been stationed in Turkey during my military career as had he, and the rest of the interview was just swapping stories on where we had been and what we had done ;). Needless to say I spent the next 19 years working with Gary in several of the many capacities he held. Kris and I were stunned to hear of his passing. Our prayers are with you and your family. God Bless and God Speed.
