What sad news.  A group of us from Class of 60 spent an afternoon with Gordon at Lou Poliscastri's memorial service.  He was so upbeat and happy to see us all and we were so happy to reconnect with him.  My sympathy goes out to his family and I am so very sorry for your loss.  Ardis (Zanker) Uberti

Ardis Zanker was so right about Gordon's visit to my brother's Memorial service in Florida.  After the service, he and Ronnie Bibbo stayed overnight and my family got to hear the most hilarious stories about my brother and his friends from the Class of 1960.   

Gordon always had the funniest things happen to him at PHS and it was so wonderful sharing the happy memories.  He had us laughing late into the night!   Some of the stories I remembered because he was always at our house on Mayfair Road with my brother.   He was a great guy with a big heart and was always there to lend a hand.

I was so sadden to hear he passed away on Christmas Day.  He spoke so kindly about his family and I know he will be greatly missed.   I'm sure Gordon, my brother, Louis and Ed Citro are stirring up stuff right now!  Rest in Peace.
