Gary F. Nolan, 44, of Wilmington, Delaware passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 15, 2020.  He was surrounded by loved ones.

Gary had many interests, but music was in his soul.  His love of music encompassed many artists and decades.  Known as Gnu, he was a legend when it came to music production and his lyrical style always left everyone wondering what planet he was from (just how he intended!).

Gary was preceded in death by his father, John F. Nolan.  He will be deeply missed by those who survive: his mother, Shirley J. (Higginbotham) Nolan; his brother, Jack Tidwell (Connie); his sister, Hilma Rosa Knox (Jim); his fiancée, Donna Hill; his step-daughter, Taylor Hill; as well as numerous cousins, family and friends.

In accordance to current health regulations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, funeral services will be held privately for immediate family only.



We apologize for the technical difficulties that prohibited access to the livestream option for Mr. Nolan's services. The family has granted permission for a recording of the service to be shared on this obituary page. We will post the recording as soon as possible. 

Thank You for your understanding and cooperation.
