I am so terribly saddened to learn of Garry's passing. This kind, soft spoken gentle man will be greatly missed by all whose privilege it was to have been his patient, friend, colleague, or student.
I will forever remember his generosity, his well nourished eloquence, and kindness I was shown from the moment I met him to each and every patient of his in whom he placed his trust in me to participate in their
oral health care. I recall the day I came to his office to introduce myself, he graciously made time from his busy schedule to speak with me. It has been my privilege to have known Garry over almost 30 years and a greater privilege to be entrusted to see his patients. I have known no other pediatrician with a greater appreciation and advocacy for the importance of early preventive dental health. My contact with Garry extended beyond private practice while teaching at Children's Memorial, Hinsdale, and Feinberg. He has served as a role model for so many, and it is eminently clear he will be missed by all who fell under his wing , and in particular his wonderful colleagues in Darien. I will miss his smile and dedicated spirit and devotion to the well-being of children. His many contributions to so many will long be remembered.
Please accept my sincerest condolences.
