If one could describe Gary in one phrase, it would be Jack of all trades, Master as well. However, Gary cannot be described in one phrase. During his lifetime, Gary has collected an extensive knowledge of numerous trades, such as auto mechanic, plumber, electrician, and so on. This is extremely handy for someone who helps design and build for myriad research projects. While the students view him as a hard driving taskmaster, they are genuinely thankful for all his efforts. In addition to being an invaluable asset to the laboratories, Gary is also a well-known captain of planes and boats. Never one to let life slide by, he can frequently be found fishing or scuba diving off his boat “Courtney."
