Gary was involved in many activities and played an important role in people’s lives. He spent his career with Diaz•Yourman & Associates’ family for more than 18 years, and he had been an Associate/Shareholder since 2008. Gary had been actively involved with ASCE for more than 20 years, serving many leadership roles within ASCE Orange County and Los Angeles Branches (most recently as Immediate Past President of ASCE Orange County Branch); he was also very engaged with Engineers Without Borders Orange County Chapter. His family, friends, co-workers, fellow board members, and colleagues will miss him tremendously.
