In Memoriam – Gary Agism

The SCC regrets to announce the passing of Gary R. Agisim (72), on Friday, May 15th from complications related to COVID-19.

Gary, a proud graduate of Grinell College, was a member of the Society for more than 40 years, most recently of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the SCC.  He was employed by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare since 1984 holding multiple patents and also served his country in the US Navy from 1969-1973. Gary was a devoted mentor, educator and friend to the society. He always had a smile and was often known for delivering the last presentation at SCC National Meeting on Friday afternoon drawing a full house, where he would not only present top quality science, but would sing and recite the classics.
