Gary F. Beringause

Sergeant Gary F. Beringause served the Georgia Tech community for 14 years. Beringause and Jim Luck, assistant athletic director at Georgia Tech and the school`s winningest baseball coach, were killed when their car was hit by a truck in east Georgia. The two had attended Tech`s football practices in Athens and were returning to Commerce, Georgia, where the team was staying before Saturday`s Georgia-Georgia Tech game. Though the game ended in a loss for Georgia Tech (31-24), the team dedicated the game to Beringause and Luck.
