Deepest Sympathy

It was a total shock for me to hear of his death.

Gwyn was one of the most knowledgeable old school electricians that I ever met. It was hard for me to see the outcome of his accident at work, but he overcame his disability and wanted to be treated like everyone else. I would talk to him every morning first thing and throughout the day. I miss our conversations and comradery. He was a great guy and I will miss him.

My condolences to his wife and family.
