Gary was a good friend over several years. When I began my residency in pathology in 1981, Gary was 2 years ahead of me in the program. We had some hilarious times, particularly at department parties. Of most significance, however, he dramatically changed the remaining course our lives in a major way. He got a job in Florida after the navy and he recommended me to the group. I went on to become a partner and had the most satisfying career any pathologist could hope for.
Thank you Gary. RIP.

Gary,my brother, you fought a hard battle with your condition. Now may you find peace. My best time with you was when we went to Maine with Dave and our nephew Michael. We hiked through the moss covered woods,explored tide pools on the pebbled shore and dug up clams to make clam chowder over the campfire. This I will always cherish.
