News   News : Gary Peake passed away
   posted by Seer on 8-Nov-2006 21:22:06 (4442 reads)
Gary Peake passed away this week after a hard struggle with cancer and put up a good fight. He would want all of his friends to know how very much they meant to him.

Gary was known in the Amiga world as a founding member of Team AMIGA with Rick Lembree. He also worked for Amiga Inc for a while in the hope to help bring the Amiga back. He was diagnosed with metastasized lung cancer and a brain tumor a few months ago.

For an interview with Gary please download Total Amiga

This thread is forwarded to his family so they know how well known and loved Gary was by many.

Rest in peace Gary. Thank you for all you did.

He worked for Amiga Inc as "Director - Developer Relations & Support" so he was a guy that made things move.
We'll remember you, always.

I used to be a regular on the Team Amiga mailing list. I still receive the list, but haven't ventured in there much in ages because of the political slant on there...

I enjoyed, and agreed with, many of the things he said when he was on there, including virtually all the political things he said.

He was a great man. He will be missed.

The Amiga community will not be the same without him...

Gary was one who made himself visible and available, and who was even sometimes successful in making stuff happen where others failed or didn't seem to try. He will surely be missed.

My condolences to his family and friends.

Best regards,

A very sad loss. Thanks Gary for your hard work.

I've also lost family and friend to cancer. In response I've been participating in the United Devices Cancer Research Project for the past couple of years in the hope advancements in eliminating cancer can be found.

I'd like to express my condolences to his friends and family also.

Perhaps the final release of OS4 could be dedicated to him...

I think OS4 should be dedicated to Gary and Padre.

Rest in peace, Gary. And condolences to your family.
