    I received this sad news this morning from a friend in New Zealand.

    Gary was a well known CW operator and wrote the "Morseman" column in Break-In which is the NZART magazine.

    He was a professor of physics at University of Auckland. I knew him when I was a student and then later worked with him when I was employed as a technician in the same department.

    He was a great teacher. The students really liked him.

    Gary was a long time member of the
    Chicken Fat Operators club.
    The CFO club is devoted entirely to
    Morse Code. He will truly be missed as
    a "SILENT KEY".
