Not easy to say, Gareth passed away a few days ago. We’d both gotten busy and with Covid added in, we had not caught up in a while. Now, as often happens, it’s too late. I sure miss him.
The memorial service is tomorrow, January 14, 2021 at 10:15 EST. Obituary and a link to the streaming service at https://www.loomisfuneralhomes.com/obituaries/mr-gareth-swanepoel/.
There is also a gofundme page set up for his family. As always, if you can, donate. If you can’t, that’s ok too. We’re all doing the best we can.
We’re hoping to do something later in the year from the Orlando data community, something we can send to the family maybe, or an annual award in his name (I think he’d smile at us awarding someone a “Gareth” award every year).
