The message about the death of former RAB CEO Gary Fries was passed along this morning by his son Todd.

"I want to thank everyone for their support and prayers," he wrote. "This morning at 12:13 a.m. Arizona time my father peacefully passed away. In leaving this world for a better place, he did it in typical Gary fashion. His determination and heart astounded the entire hospice staff.

"In their process they would most likely have notified the family on Saturday that it would be soon, but in typical Gary mentality he proved them all wrong, going until Friday. For this particular group of people, I thought it would might put a small smile on your face to know that he left on his terms."

We'll have more on this story throughout the day, as well as comments from the many people who knew Gary Fries throughout the industry.
