Nolan R. Gargas Obituary
Nolan Robert Gargas, 26, died on May 21, 2017. He is survived by his parents, Barbara Bodell and John Gargas, and sisters Anna Bodell and Elizabeth Gargas as well as the beloved shelter cats Scooby, LuLu and Ganset. Nolan was deeply woven into the lives of many as a positive force of altruism and free-thinking; he is deeply missed. His temperament was best described by his Granny B, when she said still waters run deep how true this was. He loved music and had been creating rhythm most of his life. A passion for the drums lead him to begin lessons at age 8 and ultimately to Berklee College of Music where he was in his senior year, majoring in both Electronic Production & Design and Acoustics. For Nolan, the appreciation of music went hand in hand with a reverence for silences. An avid ultra-light hiker, he was most at home in the White Mountains where he pursued the solitude of nature, recorded its tranquility and captured its powerful images. Nolan was an excellent listener and when he spoke he chose his words with care. Loved by all who knew him; we mourn the music left unmade and pictures not taken, but his spirit resounds. Celebration of Nolans Life will be on Aug 6 from 4PM- 6PM at the Story Chapel at Mt Auburn Cemetery 580 Mt Auburn Street Cambridge, MA When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. Emerson In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made to the Appalachian Mountain Club, 5 Joy Street, Boston, MA 02108 or via their website www.outdoors.org/ tribute
