Gary died March 23, 2022, in Fairfax, Va., of kidney failure.

He came to us from Lake Worth (Fla.) High School, where he was active on the newspaper staff and debate panel. At Princeton, Gary majored in English. He was active in the chess club and the Cooperative School Program. He ate at Terrace Club and lived in Little Hall his senior year with Peter Peff.

After graduating, Gary worked briefly for Pratt & Whitney and then entered military service as an Army artillery officer stationed in Fort Sill, Okla. Upon mustering out, he taught high school English for a few years before joining the U.S. Department of State in 1975, from which he retired in 1997. During his tenure, Gary served in many international posts, primarily in South America and Asia. In retirement, he continued to work on State Department projects until finally hanging it up in 2010.

Gary’s first wife predeceased him in 2005. He was forever grateful for the family he was granted, the life he had been given, and the work that he did. The class extends its deepest sympathies to his children, Amanda, Sara, and Andres; his extended family; and friends.
