I am shocked and deeply saddened to hear this news. Gary was a superb human being. I had the pleasure to work with him for about a year when he was writing for my cigar site.

  • I just talked to Eddie Ortega of United Tobacco (EO Brands), a mutual friend that actually originally introduced me to Gary. He *thinks* it was Liver Cancer. Gary wasn’t feeling good for a couple of weeks, was in the hospital, and then out of the hospital. He definitely had liver problems from contracting Hepatitis years ago.

  • Thanks Larry. Gary was a very cool, and much loved guy. He didn’t know it, but I was planning on going back into business with him next year, but now that will never happen.

    We’ll have to wait until I go home too, but I plan on hanging out here on Earth for a while longer.

  • I am saddened by your loss Kevin.
    Please accept my condolences and express them to all who were affected by his passing.
