Sorry to hear of Gordon's passing, but he is at rest now in heaven.  He was such a nice person and always helping at Red Quarry when I attended there while growing up. He had such a beautiful voice. I loved to hear him sing. I am sure my Mom, Kathleen King, was there to greet him.

God Bless.

I am deeply saddened by the death of Gordon.  In my youth, Gordon and his family were our neighbors on the next hill. I attended both the Red Quarry Church and school with Gordon.  I have many fond memories of our youth both at Church and in school where Miss Mae Carnes watched over our development and guided our learning both in school and Church.  It was a wonderful youth and Gordon was a treasured friend. I always looked forward to a brief visit with him during my infrequent visits to Indiana through the years.

I admired his faith, his wonderful voice and his loyalty.  Heaven is surely blessed to welcome this good and dedicated servant.
