Jim and I are sending our condolences for your loss of Gordon. When Beth and I worked together Gordon would stop in and bring happiness with him. The times I’m seen him he alway had a smile on his face. God bless and prayers to his family.

Gordon did an excellent job as President of our lake board. I always enjoyed talking with him about all the fish he caught on any given day. He will be missed by many. Rest In Peace my friend!

Jane and Family,
We were saddened to learn of Gordon's passing. We know he will be greatly missed. We certainly have fond memories of Gordon from the years of living next to you guys. He was always so friendly and willing to help us and our children. Moving away from such good neighbors was one of the hardest parts about leaving Terre Haute. We love you guys.
Love, Brad and Susan
