Tribute from his husband, Alan
Gary’s husband has paid tribute, The Jersey Evening Post reports.
In a statement, Alan said: ‘I expect there will be many tributes made to Gary in the coming hours and days and I want to keep my words about him now as simple as I can.
‘Through his career in journalism and broadcasting, Gary would have seen every variation of words describing someone’s strength and bravery, their wit and humour, their kindness and generosity, their stubbornness and determination, their sense of mischief and their joy in life’s simple pleasures.
‘So, in an attempt to avoid cliché, I am just going to misquote a line of dialogue from the final episode of The West Wing, being one of Gary’s favourite programmes and something said with love and pride by one spouse to the other.
“You did a lot of good, Gary. A lot of good.”‘
