I was so saddened to learn of Gordon's passing. We hadn't spoken in a long time but I still have great memories of our years in Dental School. Such a wonderful guy-always friendly, always smiling, always willing to help you if you needed anything. We played on the same intramural basketball team. I wasn't very good but Gordon was a good enough athlete to cover my mistakes. He always had my back. I read once that life is a game that you play the best you can and in the end if you have family and friends to honor you memory then you have won. Gordon surely won. My prayers are with you and your family.

Just heard of the passing of Gordon. He was in my unit lab in dental school. We experienced the four years of dental school together. Great man who was always positive and reassuring in good and bad times.
He will be greatly missed.
