VALE Gary Kelly


Folks it is with a heavy heart that I post the following from Gary Kelly's Aussie Odyssey site. RIP Friend

April 27, 2015. TX Greg here. I received the news this morning from Anna that Gary did pass away weekend before last and we're still trying to gather more info. I've just been sitting here in front of the comp crying all day lost for words. Anna helped with a few...

"And write a nice message to him from everyone about all the years we've got to spend with him and he has become a part of our families. Then end with its not over yet Gary now you can see all of Australia with the best view in the house! Can't wait to catch up with you one day. We will all see him again one day. He is finally at peace and gets to spy on everyone!"

Greg

Thanks Copper1....Gary helped me a few times with advice given freely and I know he was a great bloke. I will miss him on the forum and wish I'd known him personally.

Gday...

OH DAMN (but much stronger words slipped out of my mouth first cry)

Thanks for the advice, sad though it is. He was a great bloke from what I could deduce from interacting with him on here.

Please pass my condolences and thoughts to his mob when you get the chance.

Another good bloke taken too soon. cry

cheers - John

I am very sadden by this loss, a man who I had not met in person but felt that the day we did meet would be as though I had known him for some time, his wit and look on life was everything.

May you rest in peace. Gary Kelly.

Thanks for informing us copper1, albeit very sad news.

RIP Gary, you only got to do a short trip in your rig while busting to get on the road.

It was not to be and you were a trooper to the end.

Your sharp and humorous with will be missed by all. cry

Never met Gary but along with everyone on here.
Was hoping he would be back on deck again.
I am so sad that he didn't get to fulfil his dream of getting Pj on the road.
I hope wherever you are Gary that you health is restored and that you have the best set of wheels ever.
Hope you are enjoying some great Happy Hours too
RIP Gary. You will be missed by one and all

Terrible, terrible news. I would just like to add my condolences to Gary’s family. Although I never met him personally, I always loved Gary’s sense of humour, his lovely turn of phrase, and his unfailingly positive attitude. He will be missed on this forum and far beyond. RIP Gary Kelly.

Oh dear! I am so sad to hear about Gary. I had been hoping to hear he was recovering and making his plans to go on the road with PJ. He was such an interesting and witty man, I will miss his comments.

I am so sad to hear this news. I was really hoping that he and PJ would be able to hit the road together and have many happy adventures.

I have been a fan of Gary from way back when he worked at radio 2GO in Gosford NSW. He was a real character, full of fun, smart and an all round nice bloke.

R I P Gary. 

Thanks for letting us know C1.

 As first time member and trainee grey nomad I had been following these pages/forums and came across the various characters and their Blogs via these pages and Gary Kelly stands out as one hell of a bloke. I had been so looking forward to him hitting the road in the PJ and regaling us with  tall tales and true, he will be sorely missed by all in Grey Nomad Land.

Terrible news. Only wished we could have met at some point. We might have unknowingly shared a lift or passed each other by in the foyer as it appears we were both working in the 2GB building in Sydney in the 70's, but for different companies. Will miss his charm, wit and positive outlook.
