My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
There is a video on Garry's Facebook page about him driving to the show to meet Jon...singing Yes music...Garry was so excited. What a shame. I can't seem to find it now unless it was on his daughter's page.
Wow, I'm so sorry to hear of this loss. He will be greatly missed here on Yesfans, but most of all by his familiy and friends. I wish them strength to cope with this loss.
The mind is like a parachute; it works much better when it's open.
Garry was a real friend, I always enjoyed his company at the different shows. I met him for the 1st time 11 years ago in Sept.
This news is so heartbreaking. He had such a positive attitude through his illness, I had such a hope that somehow he would find a miracle.
Garry will be missed by so many.
Rest in Peace Garry
I'm very sad to hear of Garry's passing. My sincere condolences to Garry's daughter, Mom and all who knew him personally.
I've thought of him often since his cancer diagnosis. His good fight is over now. Now his atoms can travel the universe he had such a sense of curiosity and wonder about. Rest in peace, Garry.

This is very heartbreaking..so sad and way too early to lose such a wonderful peerson.
Garry was so different in person from his yesfans trueyoutrueme persona..we butted heads in religious forums, but he was steadfast and confident in his own point of view..it made debates heated but interesting and challenging.
In person garry was a generous,loving and giving peerson..the first to help in any way..the times we all spent together before concerts..bbkings..patrick moraz..and so many others are some of my favorite moments and i look forward to thinking of him and honoring his love of yes at many more pre show gatherings.
He will be greatly missed by myself and so many.
rest in peasce garry..i have never seen someone face an illness so bravely and positively. I wont forget him.
with love and wonder, denise

Very sorry to hear this. Deepest condolences to all who knew and loved him.
As many have also noted, I too was inspired by the nature of his courage during a long, hard fight. No such thing as "losing" a fight like that.

Very sad, Garry was much admired and loved here, and with good reason. I never stood in the same room with him ever, but like others here, engaged in many conversations about "life". The space that surrounds us is also within us. We are that space, and Garry could think across the light-years, galaxies and eons or the way matter folds in on itself in the quantum realm (also within and outwith us) whilst eloquently discussing his spiritual overview and analytical opinion of it.
These were aspects of Garry I love. I'll miss him online, the same as others around here will do too.
Garry will have answers now to questions more profound than can be dared to wonder in life. Wish I could continue the dialogue now.
