Gary was one of the people who trained me when I first joined the relatively new Data Systems Department at , then, Texas Electric. He was incredibly smart, very funny, and most patient with me. I have many fond memories of times working on projects with the whole team. So very sorry to hear of his passing. Haven't seen or heard from him for many years but will never forget his kindness to me as a new programmer. Blessings to his family. God speed, Crider.
