I was deeply saddened to learn of Gordon’s passing. I have fond memories of him and your family’s involvement in church, school, and 4-H club activities. I remember Gordon sharing his passion for model airplanes when he demonstrated a tethered plane to us astonished students in the Navarre Grade School gym! His youthful enthusiasm made a lasting impression on many!
May God’s love surround you during this difficult time.
