Gordon was born in Apple Valley, Parma, Idaho on Nov 3, 1920; he was the son of Jim & Nellie Correll. He graduated from Parma High School and later enlisted in the Coast Guard during WWII. He participated in the Aleutian Campaign as well as operating a landing barge off Tarawa and other areas, serving on the USS “Arthur Middleton.” He worked on fire boats in Tacoma prior to moving to Arlington.

Gordy was my neighbor, he loved working in the yard and was so interesting to talk to. God is now taking care of him.

I met Mr. Correll when I was stationed at Jim Creek Naval Base, '64-'65. What a nice, gentle man, he was. The type you don't forget. I believe he also drove a very nicely kept vehicle. Rest in peace, my friend.
