A word from Lou, our blogger:
Gary was one of the first people to get involved with the Hamilton Blues Lovers. He was a passionate local music supporter and became a good friend to my wife and me. I'll miss his good nature and wonderful conversations about music.

Donna Panchezak (Trickbag)
Shocked and deeply saddened by the sudden death of a long time supporter of music and our dear old friend, Gary DePodesta. Gary would appear at many of our Trickbag gigs, cheering us on over the years. He volunteered in many various organizations and especially the Festival of Friends of which he was so looking forward to attending the first year back in Gage Park. He was a sweet and gentle soul and will be dearly missed. RIP dear friend...God's speed.

A kind gentle soul has left the Hamilton community, may peace be with him.
