Very sad news.  I talked with Gary in many conferences and he was a very
knowledgeable man.  He is so young to go!

Oh, I hate to hear that. I saw and talked with Gary several times last
year at the Coastal Geotools conference, etc.  He will definitely be
missed as a resource in the field.

He came and spoke at Dr. Elsners Open Source software class a couple of
Spring semesters ago.  A very intelligent person.

	For those who knew him, Gary Lee Watry (55) passed away last
Thursday, September 18th. He was a normal contributor to this and other
users groups, an instructor and advocate for open-source GIS software,
and a valued member of the GIS community in Tallahassee. In lieu of
flowers the family has asked that memorial contributions be made to the
Chiles High School Band Boosters, Attention: Mike German, Director, 7200
Lawton Childs Lane, Tallahassee, FL 32312.


	Gary will be sorely missed.
