Gary was a major factor in our SCRUM Team's success. He was not one to let go when our team encountered an obstacle impacting our delivery schedule. When we reached a point where we could not overcome the obstacle on our own, he gathered the facts, took action right away and worked to get resolution or a viable alternative. Gary also made sure we had a bit of respite and lightheartedness during our stand ups. Gary's skills as our ScrumMaster were right on target. He was the best example of servant leadership in action. I will miss Gary. I keep his memory in my heart.

Hope you're eating your superfoods and healthy bowls after a giant slalom mountain bike ride. Your smile and wry jokes will be missed. Thoughts and prayers.

Gary was our Agile Scrum Master and a great asset to the team as we struggled through many challenges. I've always appreciated his desire to get to the truth, to be honest even when it was difficult, and his commitment to resolving problems with the team. We'd often think things were not possible or too difficult to resolve, but Gary would walk through it with us and go the extra mile to make sure that a resolution was found, or everyone was satisfied that we'd done our best to resolve. His positive attitude and assistance were greatly appreciated. He was always so proud of his kids and was never shy about his love of being a Dad. We'll miss Gary.

I'm thankful to God for the blessing of working with Gary, and thankful to him and his family for the sacrifices they made in regard to his career. You're in our prayers.

Gary was solid. Always there to listen to me. Coached me up and never gave me BS. That's what I appreciated most about him. He kept it real with me. Told me when I was wrong, and confirmed with me when he thought I was right.

Ill root for the Sox for you buddy, unless they are playing the Cardinals.... but you already knew that.

I worked with Gary and he was always kind and willing to help out. I’m so sorry to hear of his passing.

I had the pleasure to work with Gary. I admired his ability to be honest, caring, hard working, funny (even when the joke didn't necessarily land with the audience!!), and most importantly himself. With very few people is "what you see, is what you get" a reality. With Gary that seemed to be the case. To his family, thank you for sharing him with us and know that you will always be in our thoughts.

Gary, sad to hear about the incident during this weekend's Ironman Triathalon. You are an awesome Agile Coach and you will be sorely missed. i consider you to be a friend and will miss your friendship.

I am confident that you are in a more peaceful restful place now. I hope to see you again at the Resurrection, my friend. 

Jessica, please remember that God will never forsake you or your daughters even in the darkest of times. Though seasons come and go, His promises are eternal.
