What a privledge to have known Gordon. He was a giant in the music world having come from humble beginnings, and always grounded even with such great success. He listened many time to my playing at church and would always come down after the service and say very kind unsoliciated comments. He always had an ear for music and regardless of what was going on, he was in tune with the note being played. He gave complete respect to others playing and how gratifying to hear kind uplifing words from someone who had done it all. We had many converstations about music, but he never turned the spotlight on himself, it was always where have you been and what have you done. Thats what great legacy's are made of. The music world has lost a giant behind the scene but very much front and center. My prayers go to the family who will grieve for his loss here with us on Earth, but rejoice in his commitment to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ who was always front and center in his life.

It was an honor to know Gordon who was a great neighbor and gentleman. We will always remember the wonderful talks and visits in his sunroom and on our patio! Gordon will be greatly missed.

To the Stoker Family: I am terribly sorry for your loss. The Jordanaires quartet was a prime example of the most significant contributors to American music history. I am thankful for Gordon's God-given talent, shared with the world for more than 60 years. One would be hard-pressed to locate a recording made in Nashville, between 1955 and 1980 on which one couldn't hear the voice of Hugh Gordon Stoker. I am grateful that the Jordanaires (or as Elvis sometimes called them, "The Gordonaires") were in the vanguard of bringing four-part harmony to popular music, and were center-stage in creating the great Nashville Sound.
I am thankful to God for Gordon's legacy. And may the Lord grant each of you peace and comfort at this difficult time.

Please accept my deepest sympathies. Everyone grieve the loss of their loved one to death. We could not but be deeply saddened by their passing away. God promised this will be a thing of the past. Please look up what he will do with death found at 1 Corinthian15:26 and Jesus promise regarding our loved ones we lost in death found at John 21, 28, 29. May this knowledge help you endure trying times.

My sincere condolences to the Stoker family. I met Mr. Stoker only a few times in Memphis. He was always so gracious and a great gentleman.

We consider it a great honor to have known Gordon and to have worked with him and The Jordanaires several times over the years. He was a true gentleman and friend in every sense of the word. Rest in peace Gordon, the world will miss you.
