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!"

I'm really sad to hear that. Rest in Peace Gary.
Such a supportive, encouraging nice man. I'm sorry he couldnt do all his travels in PJ but gee he had some fun setting it up.
Westy. Some people I know are like slinkies. They look really funny when you push them downstairs !
OH DAMN (but much stronger words slipped out of my mouth first )
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.
cheers - John

I just don't know what to say - he was such a lovely man - I will remember him the last time I saw him.
Thanks Greg for the info.

I did so enjoy Gary's sense of humour and cheerfulness on this site.
He will be missed. RIP Gary.
I used to be addicted to soap, I'm clean now.
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.
Enjoy and have a good day.Radar

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.
BE WHO YOU ARE AND SAY WHAT YOU FEEL .....
Don't Worry Be Happy
Yes, I miss his input. RIP Gary.
much admired by me like all others. Sharp mind and great personality.
I never had the honor to meet Gary but loved his sense of humour
my condolences to Garys family
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.
Life is so much easier when you have a sense of humour :-)

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.
