The memories will always be there and he wont be forgotten by myself nor the people whose lives he touched no matter how briefly. RIP Gareth

Message: Gareth worked at Exchange Data over 10 years ago and I had not seen him since he left. I remember him well - his sense of humour, fair play and all in all he was a very decent man. It must be so sad to lose a member of a family at such a young age. I hope that you get strength knowing that he will be missed by all of us who knew him. RIP Gareth

Message: It seems like yesterday when Steve Gooder and myself interviewed Gareth for a data sourcing job at EDI. I'm shocked to hear that he's no longer with us. He had a peculiar ability to cheer everyone up in the office and was the life and soul of the party if he came out for a drink. On the other hand he was also quite an intellectual. I still have a book of Tolstoy short stories that he lent me.
Gareth Farry RIP.

I never met Sinead, but Gareh always spoke highly of her and I remember particularly when he was saving his wages to buy her a lovely engagement ring. God help his family in this difficult time and may Gareth's memory live forever with all of us.

Message: Dear Sinead,
I wanted to offer my condolences for your loss. At Brighton University being in his company was the highlight of my time there.I was very fond of Gareth and saw him as a man of exceptional wealth in his personality whether it was his humour, grace or intelligence.
It was an honour to have known Gareth, and even more so to have considered him a friend.
My thoughts and prayers are with you Sinead and your family. David
