Gary Alan Feurer, age 78, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 3, 2020 at the Seasons Hospice Unit at Christiana Hospital with his wife and daughter at his side.
Born in 1942 in Marion, IL, he was the son of the late Walter and Freida Feurer. Gary graduated from Marion High School, attended MIT, and graduated from Boston University with a degree in Music Education. Before falling in love with computers, he was a beloved high school music teacher in Massachusetts. Gary enjoyed performing in and directing shows with the Gateway Players of Southbridge. He later moved to Delaware to pursue a new career in computers at the University of Delaware. Gary studied Artificial Intelligence and became a Programmer Analyst for the Office of Educational Technology. His nickname was “Gary Gadget.” Gary loved “How-to Manuals” and could fix just about anything. His many past-times included playing the piano for his church choir, photographing sunsets, researching his family genealogy, and always enjoying a good pun. One of Gary’s favorite things was to go on a road trip with Anne. Together, they visited all 50 states in the US and several European countries.
Gary is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Anne (Mulholland); daughter, Maria; sister, Gayle; many cousins; and several nieces and nephews.
Due to COVID-19, a private service will be held for immediate family and a memorial service will be announced at a later date.
