14 years ago today Julie and Gary DeVercelly lost their son, Gary Jr. to fraternity hazing. Gary died from acute alcohol poisoning during a fraternity hazing ritual on March 30, 2007, at Rider University. His death resulted from a Phi Kappa Tau (PKT) fraternity “Big Brother – Little Brother” initiation ritual where pledges were introduced to their big brother’s and so-called “family drink,” and compelled to consume intoxicating amounts of that alcohol as signs of brotherhood and fraternity loyalty.
No parent should have to bury their child. Today, we honor him with this tribute.
