On October 6, NASA Deputy Associate Administrator for Strategic Partnerships Wayne Hale wrote on Twitter:
Gary Coen, Gray Flight, 15th Flight Director, and my first boss, passed away from cancer last night.
Before being named a flight director, Coen served as a guidance, navigation, and control officer (GNC) during the Apollo program. He later rose to Chief of the Flight Director Office before retiring from NASA in the early 1990s.

As a tribute to Gary Coen, I wanted to show a scan of one of the early shuttle flights he worked on console. He was very receptive to autograph requests.

Wayne Hale's Blog: Gary the Gray
All things considered, Gary Coen had a spectacular career. His contributions to human space flight didn’t get a lot of flashy notice, but he built an organization and mentored a group of folks that have achieved spectacular things.

No big NASA memorial has been announced although I expect JSC senior leadership will show up and present the family with a flag.

And I will miss him.
