Gary passed away quietly at his home in Hobart Tasmania on the 19th of April surrounded by his family and friends after a four year bout with prostate cancer. I had known Gary since elementary school and we were best friends and we stayed in close contact over these many years. My wife Laurie and I were fortunate enough to see Gary on many occasions and traveled with Gary and his family on many trips to Australia and the US. Gary was a brilliant oceanographer and was quite famous. He was one of the most intelligent people I have ever met, but was at the same time just a humble and nice guy. My wife and I will miss Gary but he will not be forgotten. His friend, Jerry Bailey

His passing is just a reminder of how lucky we all were in the class of '59, memories flood back to me and I am thankful to still be able to remember alot of them.  Parties at Gary's house are very memorable.  We danced and once and a while Gary's Mom would shut the lights out and we quickly kissed the one we were dancing with, well at least I did. RIP my friend

What can I say about a friend who would let me ride on his shoulders from the parking lot down to the sand at Huntington Beach?  A friend who was able to make chemistry understandable to me when the teacher could not?  Gary was one of the nicest, smartest and most humble people I have ever met.  Rest in Peace My Dear Friend.
