Dear Tammy, Gary's Family, and Friends,
I was a friend and colleague of Gary's at EPA. Needless to say, I'm greatly saddened by his death. In addition to our work together at EPA, we shared a love of aviation. In 1994 Gary, Howard Wells and I flew from Oshkosh, Wisconsin to Fairbanks, Alaska. I'm not sure if Gary ever shared the “Alaska Video” with you. We used to joke that there were only three people who had the patience to sit through all 2 and a half hours of it. The video was shot and edited on VHS tape. Because of Gary's death my nephew and I decided to digitize it and make a 19 minute edited version. Copy and paste the following link: https://vimeo.com/69349670
