I am sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. When I worked with Gary he helped instill a desire to learn more and gain interest as mechanical designer. There are few professionals that could display such great knowledge of steam systems and other building systems and pass that knowledge along to his co-workers. I remember the in office classes that Gary and others put together to help bring the younger staff along in their careers. Gipe Associates did not make you sink or swim to learn, they taught interested people how to do your job well with care, honor and respect as if you were family. Gary along with his colleagues were at the base of much of that concept. I hope his family and friends can find peace at this difficult time.

Terribly sad news ~ we've lost a buddy from the old neighborhood ~ a good guy from such a fine Elinor Avenue family. So many memories, not to be forgotten, only cherished even more as the years tick by. My deepest condolences to Gary's children and grandchildren ~ I only wish I could be there to give you a hug. Your dad was much loved, and equally important, much respected. May he forever RIP...

Sorry to hear about Gary’s passing. He was a great engineer, honest and ethical business man, and more importantly a great person to be around. He did great work for HCPS, and he was a good friend and golf partner. We had a lot of laughs together. Rest In Peace my friend!
