Gary Roger Nathanson Obituary
December 8, 1933 - February 23, 2017 Gary "Butzy" Nathanson, 83, died peacefully in his Santa Monica home surrounded by his loved ones. Born in Minneapolis, Gary attended the University of Minnesota, then served in the U.S. Army stationed in Germany. Upon his return, he joined the Merrill Lynch investment firm in Minneapolis, later moving to Los Angeles to take over management of the Beverly Hills office of Dupont. In 1973, he retired from the brokerage business and co-founded Hanaco, a real estate investment firm. Gary and his wife Linda traveled extensively to many continents where they golfed, hiked, biked and fished. They spent winters in Rancho Mirage and summers in Aspen. Gary will always be remembered for his enormous heart, his adventurous spirit, his sense of humor and deep love of family. In addition to Linda, he is survived by his children, Andrea, Debra, Michael and Amy; brother Geoffrey and sister Nancy Bloch; his grandchildren, Kayla, Miles and Wyatt; and his beloved labradoodle, Rosie.
