We are very much shocked and sadden to hear the news of gary. I knew him since 1983 when I was doing my PhD at the University of Southampton, UK where Gary was on a Sabbatical. I always saw him a nice, generous and kind person ever I met in my life. Obviously he was one of the great enmologist in the world. Since then I had contact with him until I came to Toronto in 2002 when he introduced me to Dr. Sandy Smith, University of Toronto where I am still working with her. During this time he came a few times here and once he and his beloved wife Marge came to visit our house and we had a nice evening with them. Now I cann't belive that he is not in this world.
We are always praying for his departed soul to be in peace in heaven and also praying God will give enough courage to his family members to bear this immense loss.
May God bless his soul.
