Darryl was a bright star for me and my fellow grad students in the late 80's. We loved him.

Darryl Gless personified the expression "a gentleman and a scholar." He earned my respect and I am sorry to read of his death. My condolences to his family and his many friends.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Gless. Although I was never his student, his reputation was a bright light in the department.

Some of his past was in another country.Near the beginning of his distinguished academic career, Darryl was one of my earliest and most memorable students as a Rhodes Scholar at Lincoln College, Oxford, where our tutorials were real conversations and arguments about Chaucer and medieval literature.
Darryl remained a close friend during his postgraduate years and far beyond. For us (Cicely and Nick) he was subsequently a generous host at Charlottesville and Chapel Hill and a welcome guest on his visits to the UK. We shall always recall his companionship, both in Oxford and in places of memory in the British countryside: the North York Moors and their abbeys; the Chilterns, where we hunted for mushrooms one autumn. Our scholar travels yet these hillsides too.

A gentle, caring, scholarly man whom I was proud to have knownl
