It is with great sadness that we inform our customers that Gary Hartigan a long time consultant with DCCS and the dry cleaning industry has passed over due to complications following surgery.

Gary has had poor health in recent months and our thoughts and prayers are with Chris his wife and their families.

Gary has worked in the dry cleaning industry for many years working for Electrolux, Universal Dry Cleaning solutions, Elite Dry Cleaners and then forming his own consulting business Dynamic Drycleaning Systems. Gary worked with Brian Smith at DCCS for many years as a consultant and offered wisdom and in industry experience.

He was very astute and would ensure there was correct follow up and a paper trail on all activities. Gary’s attention to detail was never to be questioned.

Gary in his last days called me from his hospital bed asking if I had followed up with sales leads he had created. He never was interested in the money, he just wanted to do a good job by the customer.

Gary was an avid horse breeder/trainer winning many awards with his wife Chris. He was often commentating at horse events. He formed part of a radio show on fm 97.7 The Equine show which has podcasts online and he worked with John Konke in the horse industry for years.

In an effort to assist Chris Hartigan through this difficult time and to ease financial pressures we have set up a funding page. Gary has contributed a lot to our industries over many years. Any assistance that you are able to provide will make a huge difference to Chris and family.

Gary will be dearly missed by all of us at DCCS. RIP my old mate.

Brian Smith,

Gary had a full and interesting life, and many of his friends from near and far gathered for his funeral service and wake.
