John Gay

Thank you to all the people who sent condolences for my dad's passing at the age of 92 on February 4th.

His extraordinary life as screenwriter, playwright, and author will be remembered through his many works.

He was a beloved father and grandfather, and his greatest achievement was his marriage of 66 years to Bobbie, the love of his life. He will be sorely missed, and live on forever in our hearts.
