This past week we lost Dr. Cary Guffy, a long-time supporter and booster for GCSNA. In the early days he would always volunteer his time and energy to put on wonderful programs pertaining to snakes, scorpions, spiders, salamanders, and all kinds of herps. He organized and coordinated the various herpetological arrays we had placed around the Canyon and was responsible for gathering, recording and establishing our baseline data on herps at the Canyon.
Cary was a friendly and energetic man who had great passion about teaching and many of us considered him a friend. He taught biology for more than 20 years at Our Lady of the Lake University and his passing leaves a whole in our community. He will be missed.
