Born in Syracuse, New York, Gary graduated from Bishop Grimes high school and attended Rutgers University. He taught Music Technology at California State University- Fullerton. He was self-employed (Gary LaDuke, LLC) as an IT service specialist.
Gary loved music, body art, astronomy, and his family. He was the leader of The LaDuke Project, an eclectic group of St. Louis musicians and performed with various people in the Saint Louis area. Performing, recording, and producing music was Gary’s greatest passion. The only thing greater than his passion for music was his love and devotion to his family and pets.
He will be remembered for his humor, warmth, and personal brand of goofiness that brought joy to those who knew him.

We met Gary through music and attended a house concert that he did with Terry Jones Rogers. We tried to stay in contact as his life changed and he moved back to St Louis city. We were always looking for opportunities to hang out. We were shocked to hear of his passing and offer our sincere condolences to his family. We will miss his friendship.
