Sure had a lot of fun times with Gordon. Remember going to Florida in the Red Ford Torino Convertible. We stayed a night with Karen and thought we were something driving up and down the beach in Daytona. On a whim we flew to the Bahamas for a night and went to the casino.
Always enjoyed his company. I learned to ski behind his boat and still water ski!
Good man he will be missed by many.
