Retired cardiologist Dr. Gerald Gau was a familiar face for decades at Mayo Clinic. He was known for his dapper dress and his bow ties as well as his assiduous patient care.
On Christmas night, to celebrate the holiday, Chief Meteorologist Aaron White and this reporter each put on one of the doctor's trademark Christmas-themed bow ties. This was made possible when Colleen Gau stopped by the station and left a large collection of Dr. Gau's bow ties for me. Seems that since Dr. Gau is now retired he no longer wears his bow ties.
Thank you, Mrs. Gau, and Merry Christmas to you and Dr. Gau!
