    Gary had a life changing impact on me when we met in the early 90s during his sabbatical to Delft. His mentorship and friendship laid the foundation for my academic career, as he has done for so many others. I am forever grateful for his kindness and guidance. May he rest in peace. My condolences to his children and loved ones.
