Both Gary & John taught me to be open and to explore and to know the love and joy that came with being an Episcopalian. It is hard to conceive however, that Gary is gone at such young age. I so agree with Marilyn Finklea, that the tears are what we are left with for the loss of both these exceptional priests. October 19, 2014 at 1:00 pm Truly a loss for the Episcopal Church. Stranger still is that Bishop Tom Shaw died around the same time! May the rest in peace and rise in glory!

Fertig was a marvelous priest who graciously consented to officiate at my wedding to Alice Preston Hord in 1986. We had decided to elope to NYC ( after much advanced planning), so officiating for two strangers was something he needn’t have done. We always appreciated his kindness and pray for the repose of his soul. May he rest in peace and rise in glory with the saints.

When he was re-assigned to serve in the mid-west, never to return to NYC, I missed him tremendously. He was a fine man with great moral integrity and a totally dedicated brother. I was so happy when just two years ago, I sent him a Christmas card, in which I wrote an update of my life directly to his Chicago location. He wrote me back, overjoyed- thanking me for my letter and telling me of how he had never forgotten me. He also mentioned that he had “health problems”, but I hoped that he was going to be alright. I now know that I have lost one of the greatest friends I ever had.
