I just learned of Gary's passing. I considered him my mentor as I began my career at Boston University and will be always grateful for the support and guidance he provided. He was such a special person.

Gary will always have a special place in my heart. He gave me the opportunity to come to Boston University in 1995 and supported me professionally during his tenure as athletic director. Warm thoughts and sympathy are with Stella and the rest of Gary’s family and close friends for your loss.

Gary was a part of my childhood in Stephens City. We attended the same church and the same schools. I was a friend of his sister, Karen, and his mother, Charlotte, was my Sunday School teacher. I reconnected with Gary after he 'came home' after retirement and spoke with him often when we both attended Shenandoah University sporting events. Rest In Peace, Gary! You will be missed!
