Saying goodbye is hard to do

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

No one wants him to go. Not the newsroom, not management, not anyone in the building, and when Gary Warren picks up his camera and leaves the Monitor for the last time July 5, the loss to his colleagues and friends will be deeply felt. While some comfort is derived from knowing he will be near his beloved family, it doesn’t make it easier to see him go.

Warren has been chief photographer for the Monitor since 2000. He and his wife Marilyn are moving to Denver, leaving staff in place to manage day-to-day operations of their retail store, Village Arts. Marilyn will travel back monthly.

Warren leaves a proud legacy at the newspaper and across Los Alamos.

“I have been involved in newspapers and publishing for more than 35 years and I can state that Gary is in the top three of photographers that I have known,” said Los Alamos Monitor Publisher Ralph Damiani. “His eye for the child’s smile or the color reflecting from the sun off an object are simply spectacular. He is a rare commodity and there are no words to say how much he will be missed here.”
