Gary was one of the first scientists I worked with out at “the farm” when I joined Dow in 1988. Down the years I always respected Gary for his high degree of technical skill and his straightforward no-BS personal style. While we only worked together on a few projects, I followed his career from afar (Indianapolis) and was glad to see the recognition he received in recent years. Gary touched many Dow/Dow Agro folks down the years and he will be remembered fondly and missed.
