I just received the following e-mail and am only passing it on:

To Gary’s family and friends,

 

Please accept my deepest condolences.  Scott Bakken just called to tell me of Gary’s passing.  Shubee was a unique individual and a very good friend.  When he was working for me he never ceased to amaze me with his VW knowledge.  He knew part numbers and interchanges like no one I had ever met.  He will be sorely missed.

I just received that email and thought wtf.  Did a quick search and then saw he hadn't posted since January 21st.

He was a good guy and helped me out on numerous occasions to ship stuff, collect stuff and generally let me use his house like a post office.  Does anybody have more info that they can email me, I will be sending a card.

Thanks

Oh Damned!

I had been mailing him lately, trying to get more ancient knowledge on the days out of his memory. He told me he'd loved to add to the stories but was traveling and didn't have time to spend at the time. He promised to get back to me later. I was really looking forward to it as he was quite a character.

Race in Peace Shubee! Race in Peace.

Wow, I just for the email as well. Shubee was a good guy and he will be missed. Last time I spoke with him by email he didn't mention any health issues. My thoughts are with his family.

During my Auto Haus days I never really knew Gary well.  Shortly after he arrived and was working in the Buena Park Store I left for other opportunities.

My contact with Gary from that point on was through my longtime friend Mike (Mikey) Olivieri who I still see on a regular basis.  Mike worked with Gary and they both loved to eat.  For those of you who knew Gary back then you knew he was large.  There was a burger place at the corner of Manchester & Western Ave. called Starlite Burger.  The guys use to venture over and the owner was always happy to see them as they ordered tons of food.

Mikey to this day says of Starlite when the subject comes us, "Starlite, starbiright, when and where will we have diahare tonight".  It was funny, but now it makes me sad to see another longtime VW guy has left us.  Mikey and I still talk about what great cars Gary owned.....

God's speed Gary.....................

As stated earlier Gary was very heavy and I think he had surgery which can be VERY DANGEROUS with results like this.  When he was in SoCal last year for the VW events several comment that he just didn't look well.  Nothing more than my hunch.

How sad. He was a nice guy from what I can tell, always wanted to share knowledge and I didn't mind the provocative cal-look or not posts.
He will be missed. Rest in peace.
