Very sad to hear of Gordon’s passing. My long time friend and hunting pal. Great memories from our hunts on Monkey Mountain, Lake City, Colorado. A dear friend since 1958 and will be missed!

I remember going to Rita’s and Tom’s River front home to eat crabs and being treated like family, I was just another one of his girls. He loved everybody and you were always welcome at his house. Gordon will be deeply missed.

A birthday party was where I was introduced to Gordon. I was a guest of Lynn's. Oh, what a feast was laid with all sorts of BBQ goodies. Gordon was most proud of, and had most diligently prepared a full pig to roast in a dig out there at the house on the river. We'd indulged in burgers, not dogs, bbq'd chickens and numerous sides, all the while smelling delicious roast pork eminating from aforementioned pit. It came time for Gordon to unearth his masterpiece...only to find he's ultimately cremated th damned thing!! Nothing but ash and bone. Sad, but hysterical!
