All,

I just found out (today) from Gary's wife Jane that Gary passed away last Nov 30, 2020 from a battle with cancer.

I knew Gary outside of Steel Soldiers and he was truly a nice guy and an "expert" on all military commo from the 70's and 80's...

She wrote me that they are closed and have no technician to do radio repairs.

I am so bummed out as Gary was 62 (my age as well) and far too young to be gone now...

Odd how it is... I am not so sure that a "thumbs up" is the right thing to "Like" something like this - but something had to be said.

I will be 61 in another couple of months and yeah, way to young to be gone... It would be nice if there was a youngster with electronic skills who could help them keep the business alive. Not that I have that kind of skill.

I agree on a youngster taking over (they are our "future").

Unfortunately, Gary had no children reading his obituary and tribute.

As I told his wife how saddened I am, but also angry that "evil" people seem to never die and "good" people like Gary are taken early...

This is sad news. Aside from their technical repair skills, their refurbishment/ restoration talents were top notch! I bought a full VIC-1 system from Gary and it is beautiful and flawless. The paint, the lettering, the details were all perfect.
