    So sorry to hear this news and so sorry for Garry's family. As so many have noted, he was always willing to answer every question at his recruiting events, even if it has been asked over and over already. Truly excited to talk about USC football and such a warm person. And thanks to VBall for the touching tribute.

    The sad passing of a noble Trojan, thanks Garry for your sweat and tears. His passing makes things just a little less important on the grand scheme of things. Fight On Garry and those who grieve his passing.

    My heart goes out to the Paskwietz family. Like most, I am floored by today's news. I did not realize his health situation was as serous as it was.

    God bless you Garry! You impacted so many lives in a positive way that most of us will never truly know. You are now with the Father and in good company. As you look down from heaven from time to time, know that your baby (WeAreSC) is in good hands.

    Fight On Garry, you will be sorely missed!

    I’ve just lost a dear friend who I never personally met.

    My deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers go out to his family. Thank you for sharing this remarkable Trojan with us!

    Fight On Forever Garry! ✌

    I am shocked and saddened to hear of Garry’s passing. He was always upbeat and warm, and very good to me, really more than necessary. I am not an SC alum but that didn’t matter as far as he was concerned. Leaving us at the age of 52 just proves the old line that only the good die young. Condolences to his family and friends.

    Wow. I don't know what to say. I only knew Garry casually having met several times at various events and having invited him to speak at a few of mine over the years...but I feel this loss very personally.

    The Trojan Family just took a big hit.

    I think I've been back and forth through Kubler-Ross' first four stages several times already since reading the announcement.

    It will take a while to get to acceptance.

    Prayers of Peace to the family.

    RIP Garry. I never met you but have been with you since the start of your career and subsequently the very first WeAreSC. It's become a part of my life and I am thankful that you were able to share that with me. You will be missed but remembered.

    Rest In Peace, GarryP. You brought it every day from day 1. A true Trojan for life - you made each day reading about our team fun and exciting, but most of all, you inspired confidence in our program, and we all accepted you as the trusted source to ease our neurotic emotions. Fight on!

    This news is heart-breaking. Met him a number of times, he always demonstrated remarkable modesty and decorum. His legacy will live on. God Bless you, Garry. I pray for you and your family.

    It is so difficult to hear this news. I didn’t know Garry personally but every time I saw him around the campus or at the game, one theme was always common about him; his smiling and kind face. He will always be remembered as a true Trojan and a man of impeccable character.

    RIP Garry the Great!

    I'm stunned. I just got online 1st time today. Hoping for update and news on Garry. I didn't even consider we'd lose him.

    Prayers to Garry and his family. The Trojan Family is in mourning.

    Prays for family. A sad day for the Trojan Family. Garry would take the time to point out who to watch at RS camps. God be with you.

    RIP Garry. A man of true class who elevated the "recruiting junkie" process by always staying above the fray. I only met you once for a few minutes, but feel like I lost a close friend. You will be missed.
