I was close enough in distance to have taken in the Heirloom "mater days" at Theineman's where he helped start and grow heirloom tomatoes for one of the most prestigeous greenhouses in Jefferson county. I observed him meet people at this event, and he was eager to share his knowledge with one and all. I was amazed at the detail that he gave in his instructions to other new tomato growers. It is a great loss for DG, and for me personally, as Gary was my mentor for many years and gave me the priviledge of growing out some heirloom varieties, saving seed and returning the seed to him. Of course I was the winner on that deal, as I got the summer to taste many different varieties, free of charge. He will be sorely missed.
