We are all so thankful that we have been given the opportunity to be a part of his world.

He was a remarkable husband, a magnificent dad, an amazing "father"-in-law, a grandfather that everyone dreams of having, a great-grandfather, which not everyone is fortunate enough to become and a best friend whom everyone looked up to. We all hope that we can come close to accomplishing all that he has over the past 93 years and more than anything else we hope that we can come close to being the person that he was. We miss you so much and though we never wanted this day to come, we thank you for 93 incredible years. It has been quite a journey. To you John Driscoll "You’re Wonderful, God Bless You!"

John Gartside

Internationally known adventurer, writer and lecturer on fly fishing

John C. (Jack) Gartside of Winthrop, an internationally known adventurer, writer and lecturer on fly fishing, died on December 5 after a long battle with cancer. He was 66 years old.

Mr. Gartside grew up in Revere and lived in Boston for many years. He gained fame as much for his adventures while sport fishing on five continents as he did for his unique designs for fishing flies and his expert advice on angling. He was profiled in Sports Illustrated and appeared on television and radio shows throughout the country.

He wrote and self-published several books featuring his fly patterns and had scores of articles published in magazines for anglers in the United States, Europe and Asia. His designs are used around the world and are featured in museums.

As a teenager, he saw his hero, Ted Williams, tying flies at a sports show and the Red Sox slugger taught him how to tie his first. Soon he polished his tying skills and began fly fishing throughout Massachusetts.

After graduating from Revere High School, he joined the US Air Force where he had the chance to fish in Japan and Okinawa. Afterward, he earned a BA at the University of Massachusetts at Boston and began teaching English in the Boston School System.

Mr. Gartside soon abandoned teaching and drove a cab in Boston for many years to help pay for fishing trips and travel abroad. An avid reader and intellectual, he eventually learned four foreign languages, often with the aid of women he met in his travels.

A believer in no-budget travel, one summer he supported himself during a fishing trip in Yellowstone National Park by selling his flies to tourists and a local sporting goods store. Their popularity inspired him to sell others to Boston area sporting goods stores and to launch his own mail order business.

Mr. Gartside soon began writing about his designs as well as techniques for fishing under different conditions. Later he lectured and demonstrated how to tie his patterns at major sports shows and fishing clubs throughout the United States and Europe.

In the course of his lectures, he often touched on his life of freedom and his appreciation for adventure and desire to live life to the fullest. Some of his tales dealt with encounters with bears, Nazis and a herd of elephants that once tramped through his campsite in Africa. Among fellow anglers, he met Presidents Carter and Ford, film and television stars and major novelists and painters.

He is survived by several cousins and hundreds of close friends.
