I'd interacted with Gord many times over the past 15 years. He had a great depth of technical knowledge and was always ready and willing to share that knowledge with everyone. Gord had an amazing ability to explain very technical "stuff" in layman's terms - very useful in helping me understand the reasons for why things needed to be done/handled in a specific way. I was sad to hear of his recent retirement knowing he would no longer be a source of reference for my technical questions, but was happy to know he would be able to spend more time with his family.
I am so sorry that this family time was so brief.
Please accept my sincere condolences to the entire family.
In time I hope your happy memories will help ease your loss and pain.

What a sweet, kind and gentle man. I've worked with Gordon for over 20 years. He was super smart and had a great sense of humor. When he left Travelport, I was touched by his note thanking me for all of my help. But it was Gordon who was always there to help me whenever I asked him for anything. I know Gordon was so proud of his daughter and always spoke highly of his wife. Quite a loss for everyone that knew him and loved him. May you rest in peace, Gordie.

I am speechless, my condolences to Gordon's family.
Although we work together a few times due that I live in Argentina, I must say that I always saw him like a man full of integrity and values, very professional and talented.
Thank you Gordon, hope that we could meet again on the other side.

My condolences to Gordon’s family and friends. I was fortunate enough to work with Gordon over 20 years ago. I remember the passion he had in everything he did. Gordon was beloved by those that worked along side him and the clients he serviced. Many of us are grateful for the opportunity to know him and work with him. He was usually the go to person. But more important was the warmth and joy of being around him. Thank you Gordon. You will be remembered and truly missed by many.

Rest in peace dear Gordie.

Over my many years with Travelport I would cross paths with Gordon. No matter the situation I may have had, Gordon was always willing to help out- and he did it with a smile. He loved his customers and it showed. He had a great work ethic. He will be greatly missed by so many. My thoughts and payers are with his family during this hard time. Jill Freeman
