    Dear Florence and Paul, I was saddened to learn of Gordy’s passing. He was a great friend throughout our time together at Otsego High School. I have many great memories of our time together in band, sharing many classes with Gordy, riding in his “Super fast Chevy” , and sharing hunting stories. Most of all, he was just a great, and kind person that we’ll all miss deeply. May God comfort you and your family.

    We are so sorry Florence and Paul to hear of the passing of Gordon. We went to Alamo Congregational Church with you. Gordon was such a nice young man. I never knew him as an adult but his love of photography make me wish I had seen his work.

Please share your thoughts ...
