Paul Gaylor dies

Paul J. Gaylor (“Jody”), 84, died on May 5, 2011, of brain cancer. He was married for 61 years to Anne Nicol Gaylor, FFRF president emerita. Jody was a member of the Board of Directors and previously served on FFRF’s governing Executive Council. He was a plaintiff in FFRF’s ongoing challenge of the National Day of Prayer.

Jody was the principal FFRF volunteer for its first 20 years — opening mail, filling book and sales orders, and was legendary for surprising staff with freshly baked cookies. A retrospective will run in the next issue. Cards or notes may reach Anne c/o FFRF, PO Box 750, Madison, WI 53701.
