    My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
    As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
    No lie.

          • My sincere apologies for replying so late to this. However, I would like to extend my deepest sympathy and good wishes to Gary's family and friends.
            I did not know him personally, although he must have been a hell of a guy from everything that has been said of him. Not a bad word in the bunch. If people regard me half as highly as Gary when I go, I will be content.
            Again, my deepest and most sincere condolences to all who knew him. May he walk amidst the most beautiful paradise that one could imagine. I raise my glass to you Gary.

            • Slick's speech for Gaz's do .
              I met Gary in a rather novel way: we happened upon each while participating in an internet forum primarily devoted to history. Indeed, one might say that it was our interest in history that brought us together. As it was, we were oil and water: I can make the stereotypical right-wing conservative American blush, and Gary’s two steps to the left of Ken Livingston. And yet despite his appalling political leanings,[pause for laughter]I found his broad knowledge, his eloquence, and his gentleness, not only intriguing, but captivating. Even in disagreement, Gary’s one of the easiest people to talk to that I’ve ever known.

              It’s Gary’s easy-going and chatty manner that made some pretty difficult times in my life pass easier. Many was the night, during one of my countless long drives, that Gary happily talked me through hundreds of dark, empty miles, allowing me to bend his ear, or filling my brain with wild ideas. The drivers of three states should be sending flowers here, ‘cause there’s no telling how many of their lives he saved.

              And in time, Gary became a part of my life. He’s joined me during my travels and errands, thus experiencing firsthand a New York commute. He’s been there as I’ve played ball with my kids. Don’t get me wrong: Gary’s gotten something out of the deal, too. He claimed that the reason that he didn’t subscribe to a sports television service was because if he could enjoy global sport twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, then he’d never leave the house – so he got to enjoy an American’s commentary of Premiership matches live.

              It’s hard to say what was bigger: Gary’s brain – or Gary’s heart. He relished challenge, ever confident that there wasn’t a problem that couldn’t be overcome – and son of a bitch if he wasn’t right.

              He so naturally and gracefully envisioned solutions to seemingly intractable problems that in time I – very foolishly, as it turned out – came to take it for granted. Yet he never let his ego get in the way: we’d go back-and-forth trying to punch holes in our various theories and schemes, really slamming away at each other – and I can slam pretty hard – and not once did he take offense or shrink from the opposition. He knew that that is how ideas are proved, and he was glad to participate in the process. That takes guts, and Gary has ‘em.

              These last six weeks have gone on much as any other stretch of time, only with the undefined feeling that something’s been missing, a void has appeared where before there was something intelligent and funny and warm. In reality, I mourn not for Gary, but for myself, because I miss my friend. I take consolation in the knowledge that this world is, and will be, a better place for Gary’s having been in it.

                • I have only really skimmed by the barracks of late - for a while it turns out.

                  I'm so sorry to read this news.....my condolences to his family are very late, but sincere. I can't say I knew him particularly well, but I find it sad to know I won't get to see him interact on threads again.....

                  I'll have a Hobgoblin this weekend to toast his memory ......

                            • I too have Gary on my friends list. I remember the day, in fact, because he sent me a friend request. I remember, because I hadn't yet tweaked my settings, and I got an email for almost anything tied to my account. I remember thinking to myself "who the hell is this Brit?" I bumped into him here and there, but I never really conversed with him. I hope that somehow, something I wrote either made him smile or had an impact on him and compelled him to befriend me. And that makes me smile.
                              ...how useless it was to struggle against fortune, this being the burden of wisdom which the ages had bequeathed to him.

                              • Wow. I haven't been in the barracks thread in months. I didn't know Gaz passed away at all, until today when I saw it in Nick's avatar. Very shocking and tragic news. Like so many others have said already, he was one of the first to welcome me to this little community. He will be missed.
