Gaile was a humble, generous and hardworking business man serving his church and community with integrity. A man of faith, devoted to Joanne and loving children and grandchildren. Always sharing a story! He has been missed since he sold his tire business but we knew he was around. Gaile will AWAYS be remembered by friends.
To the Gordon Family, treasure your memories, let the blessings that you shared warm you with love, encourage you with comfort and inspire you to embrace each day with purpose as Gaile would do.
Blessed to be known as his friend for 35+ years.

I will always cherish this memory of Gaile and I. Beyond grateful he was by my side on my wedding day. He was a blessing to me, but especially to his wife Joanne, sons Tim (Michele), Jeff and his 3 grandchildren.

May all of you find peace and comfort knowing Gaile is no longer suffering. My prayers are with each of you.

Love You All,
Terri
