Vern,

You are missed.

I'm deeply saddened by Gary's death. I worked with Gary at the University of Iowa for years. In fact, I was one of the first people to work with Gary when he started here back in 1990-- he took over the management of the new computer equipment prep and processing which had been handled by students for many years. I was a 21-year-old student myself, helping Gary to get things going with that project.

A few years later, when I was looking to return to IT work at the University, Gary was on my hiring committee-- he pushed to get me added to his team, even though I hadn't been doing that sort of work for 5 years or so. In large part, I owe the career I've enjoyed to Gary. He was great to work with--patient, understanding, and upbeat, with a knack for dealing with difficult customers.

I still have a couple of tooled leatherwork items he made for me, which I will always cherish. I miss him even more now, knowing I won't get to talk baseball or fishing with him again. Peace on your journey, Gary, and to all who knew you.

Gary was so much more than a tireless volunteer for many organizations in Iowa City, Decorah and throughout Northeast Iowa. He was my friend and a good fly fishing buddy for over 30 years. He dedicated his life towards preserving and improving the rivers and streams around him. We walked countless miles through creeks and watersheds over the years for JAICWC and IOWATER snapshots, where the importance of touching the water sparked a passion that continued through his life. Tight lines, Gary.
