I am truly saddened by the news of the passing of Dr. Gary Glazer. I arrived at Stanford in 1990 as an intern in General Surgery. Dr. Galzer was then the newly-appointed chairman of radiology. Dr. Glazer continued to make great contributions to the field of radiology and fostered the development and advancement of talented individuals at Stanford for 22 years. I wish Dr. Glazer's family and friends only health and happiness in the future as time soothes their loss.

I'm very sad to hear that Dr. Glazer has passed away. I started as an Admin in Radiology in 1992 when the nascent Lucas Center wasn't fully-occupied, and I remember it was kind of a fun relaxed atmosphere in which to work. I left in 1994 and now work in Psychiatry Administration, but every time I saw Dr. Glazer he'd always stop to chat for minute about the Sharks, knowing I'm a huge fan. He even gave me his coveted 4th row Sharks tickets one time when I was working there. I have fond memories of my time in Radiology and all the people I worked with, and I share in Radiology's grief over Dr. Glazer's premature passing.

My cousin Diane married Gary. We were visiting the Bay area a year ago and had a chance to visit Gary at his home. Although very tired, he welcomed our visit and it's all the more special now that he has passed. We have very fond and loving memories of Gary. He was a very loving person, proud of his family,working at Stanford, and just a warm-hearted soul. We will miss his smile, laugh, and genuine love of life. It was an honor to know him.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Glazer. My 13-year career at Stanford began in the Department of Radiology with Gary Glazer at the helm. I have many memories of staff birthday parties with chocolate rum cake and Dr. Glazer's smiles and laughter denying his hectic schedule. Besides his incredible contribution to the field of diagnostic radiology, he administered the department with a steady hand. At one party a resident presented a "Weeble" toy saying "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down." How sad that this one has prematurely fallen!

I knew Gary as a classmate at Cleveland Heights High School (Class of 1968). He was a fine friend and no doubt was an outstanding physician, family man and mentor to many in his field.

I wish I had known him better and longer. Still, I remember him well and mourn his passing. The last time we spoke was the night of our commencement. He wished me well in college. I recall him as an affable, good natured and highly intelligent person whose company everyone enjoyed.

My condolences to his family, and especially to Gwen, whom I also remember fondly.

I offer my deepest condolences to Gary's family, friends, colleagues and my Stanford Radiology family. I spent some of very best years at Stanford when I was a radiology and nuclear medicine resident during 1994-98. I had the privilege of not only learning diagnostic radiology from Gary but also watching him operate as a skilled leader for medical imaging. Radiology lost one its greatest visionaries but his memory will live on forever.

My condolences to the Department of Radiology and especially to Diane. I was fortunate to be part of the "Just Say No" group of residents from 1991-1995, and Gary and Diane were always such good sports with all of our antics for the Diagnostic Radiology Awards Banquet (DRAB) each year. We learned so much from Gary at his noon conferences sitting next to him at the alternator (an ancient film reviewing device nobody now seems to know about) and going over interesting "unknown" cases that the fellows had cued up for us. He taught us how to approach a case, and reason our way through it. I will always be grateful for his teaching and leadership, and for all the awesome faculty he recruited to Stanford who subsequently trained me.
