Gary Lee passed away last week. He was 53.
Gary and his wife Helen were married on October 10, 1999. They are the proud parents of 14 year old twins, Robert and Caitlin.
Gary was a graduate of Stuyvesant High School and Pace University. In 1984, he was appointed as the procurement officer for the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. He later served in progressively more important positions as director of space and facilities, District's budget officer and Assistant District Court Executive. Gary served as secretary to many Court committees, and was a member of many government interagency Committees. He served as coordinating editor of the Court Management and Administration Report from 1990-2009. Gary will be sorely missed by his SDNY family.
