Gordon was a man of prayer and compassionate to those around him who were in need. He loved to work on the farm, was employed by Kidron Electric for more than 57 years and by Gerber’s Poultry for 3 years. He valued his experience and friendships when in Voluntary Service working in a hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

His quiet strength and support will be missed by many.
