I am so very sad that my favorite Uncle has left us to be with God in Heaven. I’m also very relieved that he doesn’t have to go on anymore with the disease that has taken so many if our loved ones, but way to late. No one should have to struggle through that process. Thank you Uncle Gordon for all the wonderful memories.......dating my Aunt, giving us little people attention, hence how you were lovingly nick named Gordon Bosco, and oh those wonderful times at the Michigan cottage, so many laughs and precious memories. Rest in peace Uncle Gordon. You are so loved. ❤️❤️❤️

I worked for the lubricant supplier (Viscosity Oil) to IH, now CNH. In my job I had contact with Gordon frequently. He was an expert metallurgist and with his help our two companies prospered. He truly was one of my most favorite people I had the pleasure to work with in my career. Gordon's office was just a five minute ride from my office and I made that drive countless times to visit and discuss various issues. We enjoyed golf together on many occasions. I remember when he and Arleen were moving to Sun City. He showed us pictures of the house, etc. and he was very excited. His children can be proud to call him their father.

Arlene, so sorry to hear of Gordon's passing. Marilyn and I have fond memories of playing golf with Gordon in the company golf league. I also enjoyed hooking up with him to visit you and play golf in Arizona after his retirement. But most memorable was working with Gordon and his people. He was so knowledgeable and always willing to help with any issue. His willingness to help was reflected in the people that worked for him. Even after I was transferred to Burlington, I still counted on his group to help us out when we had failures and needed expert help. He was a wonderful man and a good friend and I know he will be sorely missed by many.
