  1. E. Dexter Scott says:

    I have so many wonderful memories of Gordon, Kay, Margaret and family. He was a great example to all; a man of integrity, patience and love. His legacy lives on in his posterity. So sorry I am unable to attend.

  2. Keith F. Smith says:

    Just saw this as I was looking for the obituary for my brother. I had not seen Gordon for 50 years but he was my bishop. His leadership, love and encouragement resulted in my decision to go on a mission and that has been a key aspect of my life. Gordon was a friend of my father and a mentor to me. I am part of his legacy.
