Gary Zummo, 1949-1968

Get your hankies ready. Gary Zummo's tribute page has been posted on our "Gators: Gone but not forgotten" Web site.

Click the link in the sidebar on the righthand side of this blog page. Then click Gary's name on the list of Deceased Classmates.

Doubly tragic, Gary's brother Vince (Gateway Class of '66) died in a helicopter crash in 1981. Details about his death are included on Gary's page.

Chuck Crosby, if you happen to read this, please stop and see Mrs. Zummo the next time you visit your sister. She regrets her reaction to you when she saw you shortly after Gary's death. It would mean a lot to her if you'd stop and say, "Hi."

Gators, please send along your comments and stories about Gary and Vince by adding them as comments on this blog item or by sending them to me. Instructions are at the bottom of Gary's tribute page. Other pictures would be nice too.

My brother Ray and I both have fond memories of Gary and "Vinnie." We were neighbors and classmates from 5th grade through Gateway. I can remember my Dad piling us all in the car and going to Deep Creek Lake in Maryland to swim and go out boating. Gary was a really special friend and I think of him often.
