    I was sad to hear of the death of Gordon. I went to school with Gordon and enjoyed seeing him around town and talking to him. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    Susie & Carrie–I am sorry for the lost of your brother and your dad. He was an important part in all your families lives. Keep the good memories going and laugh– that’s what I actually remember most about him was his laughter. As its been said, may you find peace in knowing he’s with God and in peace and will never hurt again. May you all find the warmth and comfort in that and know that he is always with you. Prayers and strength be with all of you. Cindy Bivens

    I had the privilege of teaching Gordon bass. He was a consistent friend to me. I have precious memories playing guitar for Zelma, Howard, and the girls. Imagine Gordon can teach me licks and riffs from Heaven next time we meet. Say hello to my dad for me Gordon. See you soon.

    To all of Gordon’s family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I have known Gordon since grade school and we graduated together. I saw him at our last class reunion and he gave me a sweet hug. I will miss him.
