Passing of Jim Gabaree of Duxbury, Vermont
By Marshall Berger

To all friends that have known Jim Gabaree, of Duxbury, Vermont,
over the years of mechanical music -- I was informed of his passing
away on June 9th, 2015.  Jim had been a collector of mechanical musical
instruments, a rebuilder, and a piano technician for 35 years.  He
loved to play his Estey pipe organ at home every Sunday morning.  He
had many stories to tell about his knowledge of instruments.

We've lost a great piano tuner and a unique character here in Vermont.
He will be missed by all who knew him.  We pass our sympathy to his
many brothers and sisters.

Marshall Berger
