I am so sorry for your loss. I was Gordon’s dental hygienist many years. We have shared many stories of Ole Miss and Arkansas football and horse racing. He touched my life and I will miss him. You are in my prayers.

Clint and all of the family. We are so sorry to hear of Gordon’s passing. He was such a great guy and a great friend. Such a great person to be around. He would keep you laughing. I will miss him.
I didn’t get to see him much, but talked with him on the phone often. He will be missed by many.
May God bless you all in your time of sorrow.

Gordon was an absolute prince of a fellow. We were friends for nearly 40 years. He was an excellent drug rep and a superb handicapper and horse player. There was no nicer person than Gordon. He loved life, was always in good spirits, had a big heart and always had a kind word. There wasn't a mean bone in his body and he would do anything for a friend (which must have included everyone as he had no enemies.) No one who knew him can forget him as he was a truly remarkable man. He will be dearly missed.

Always enjoyed running into Gordon during our working days. He usually had a funny story to tell, and he always had a positive outlook on things.
GOD rest his soul. He will be missed.

Clint and family,

We are heartbroken upon hearing of Gordon’s passing. Gordon and I have known one another for 39 years and he has always been one of my favorite colleagues in the sales field and fellow worshipper at St. James. He will be greatly missed by many. RIP Gordon Evans, aka Snave Nodrog.
