Pat, Cindy and I are saddened by Gord's passing. I worked with him at Excello Micormatic and he was always a great friend. He was wonderful at keeping track of my dad and Dad saw his obituary in the Sentinel and cut it out and put it under his pillow that night. He will be missed. Cindy and I send our love to you.

Loved Ones- If I am correct, Gord learned to play trombone with me at Froebel School when we were in 5th grade. I met Gord at his house on 13th Street and we walked together for our trombone lesson. Since then, our paths separated, but this memory lingers. May the God of all comfort be with you.

Dear Pat, Doug, Matt, and Mary: May the strength and peace of your Lord be with you as your life on this earth continues without his presence. I have many fond memories of our good times when you were our neighbors in Green Valley, Arizona. Gord loved the mountains and hiking in the many ranges in southern Arizona. Love from Bette Bosma
