I concur with Ryan's comments. I never met Gary personally, but got to know him quite well over the last three years via email. He had a great sense of humor (rarely, if ever, at anyone's expense), and at the same time, I'll always appreciate how supportive and complimentary he was of my writing and reporting contributions to Sports Radio Service. Like many who knew him, I was shocked when I heard of his untimely passing. I offer my sincere condolences to his family. We all lost a great colleague and a better person.
