Gary and I go back to Weaver Airline school in Kansas City in October 1960. We traveled together to Chicago to interview with Delta Airlines. We worked together in Chicago, Cincinnati, and Atlanta. Kathy and I will miss Gary very much. I know he is in a better place and we will see him again one day. I will always remember him by his nickname, Frag, given to him while in crew scheduling in Chicago. Gary and I hired on together and we retired together. Jim and Kathy Miller, Flint Texas.

  1. He was one of the "Good Guys."
    I was a new hire in ORD when he forged a friendship for years.
    Gary grabbed me on the airplane one day and said: "Doug. I screwed up. I need a copilot real bad. Got to send you to Dallas. Don't worry... I'll make it up to you."
    Well he did make it up to me...and then some. Gary was a good scheduler, a kind hearted guy and a real gentleman. He will be remembered fondly. God rest his soul. Doug Snowball
