In Memoriam: Mr. Gary Daum

The following is a letter from Rev. James R. Van Dyke, S.J., to the Georgetown Prep community on February 3, 2019.

Dear Georgetown Prep Community,

I am very sad to inform you that Mr. Gary Daum passed away last evening after a long illness.

I saw him this past week and have been in touch with his wife, Mary, over the past several days. In my conversation with Gary last week I was once again reminded of his enormous love for Prep--not just the institution or the place, but especially the people. He leaves an enormous legacy in the music, arts, and liturgical programs. He also leaves a hole in our hearts.

Please keep Mary and their daughter, Claire, and the whole family in your prayers.

Sincerely in Christ,

Rev. James R. Van Dyke, S.J.
