Gatton: Worldly Interests
Boyd Gatton moved to the United States in 1992 and was
still discovering new interests. An operations officer at
Fiduciary Trust who was born in Paget, Bermuda, he spent
his free time practicing tai chi in the park near his
home in Jersey City, doing carpentry work, reading and
indulging his nieces when they visited from Bermuda with
his two sisters.
"He just spoiled them to death," said his sister
Pauline O'Connor, who has learned what kind of an
impression her brother left on people while she has been
settling his affairs.
He was the type of person who could walk into a store
and leave with a new friend, like Wilfred Garcia, a
photographer who works at a camera shop in Jersey City.
"Not only was he interested in photography," Mr. Garcia
said, "but just about anything in the world."
