In Memoriam – Gary Glickman – A Friend of Cycling

Mirage members,

With great sadness and a heavy heart I’m sorry to report that twice now in as many weeks, a member of our cycling community has died. This time, God has chosen one of our own.

Long time Mirage member Gary Glickman was killed Saturday morning March 13th, 2004 on the 9:00am RBM south ride. Uneven and cracked pavement on Barnes Bridge Road in Sunnyvale caused Gary to veer into coming traffic where he was struck by a passing vehicle and instantly died.

Gary was a regular participant at the Saturday and Sunday RBM rides and always a fixture at White Rock almost every evening. His tall slender build and upright riding style was easily recognized in the group and his smile was always present. He will be sadly missed.

He leaves behind a wife, Kate and two young children.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Gary’s childrens education fund can be made out to Vanguard 529 Account and sent c/o Reisa Jaffe, 8090 Hansom Dr., Oakland, CA 94605

Please keep Gary’s family in your thoughts and prayers.

Ride safe.

Randy Rogers
