    Gordon always had a smile for me and would stop in to talk and catch up on everything life had to offer. He was a very loving caring man that loved his family so very much . I loved listening to all his stories about his trips and his adventures playing pool. I will miss his visits but I know he is happy to be with Violet again.

    Gordon was one of the nicest people ever. I was sad to hear of his passing. He was fun to talk to during my time working at superstore, and even after I left superstore, he always greeted me with a smile and quick chat. I will always remember him.
