Gordon was our bestest neighbor and a real friend. He whipped me many times at Domino and fussed when I would be gabbing and not paying attention (he,he). Most of all he shared his love of life and a quick laugh. Sure loved his sweet Patty and family. He will be missed.
So sorry for your loss of a great man, friend, father, and husband.
