Gordon was like a second dad to me, he was such a wonderful and humorous man. He always made me feel like I was one of his own children and for that I loved him just as much as my family. Gordon has touched my heart and my families heart in a way that will leave a rip where he made an impression. My thoughts and prayers are with his children and his grandchildren. Your loss is my loss too. I love you all.

Denise and I met Gordon and Sheryl 23 or 24 years ago at their home, they welcomed us with open arms. Crissy and Jon our son were in Love and we took him there to visit her if my memory serves me correctly. Gordon and I hit it off immediately even though he was a Marine and I was Army...LOL and I have always considered him my Brother in Arms. I will always cherish the times we had together and the Love they have shown to us over the years. I especially am thankful for the Granddaughter Crissy and Jon made for us. Love you Tesa! Our Prayers go out to all of the Family and friends who are grieving the loss of a great man who will not be forgotten. Till Valhalla my Brother Godspeed and much Love.
