I was fortunate to have the Jordanaires with Gordon Stoker, sing behind me on one song, when they came to Virginia Beach for the once annual Elvis Festival, with the Jerry Presley Band and DJ Fontana on drums. Rest in peace my friend. Joe Searles

I came to Nashville right out of HS in 1957' Was reared up on a farm West of Nashville; in a familyof "Hillbillies" who played & sang Country & Gospel & listened to the GOO. At Business School I made friends w/ a girl from East TN. and she and I immediately became like sisters. Neither of us had much money, so we began to attent teh "Friday night Frolics" and the GOO a lot. We met the Jordaniars and both had already admired them; We soon realized that they did not have a Fan Club so we Immediately organized one. Not long after we had begun the Fan Club Elvis began having this group sing backup for him. They had sung back up for MANY other singers before; but most folks only remember that they sang w/ Elvis. The Jordanieres were in at least one of Elvis' first movies. And shortly after J D Sumptner and his group stopped doing back-up for Elvis. The Jordanieres began doing all of his back up work. There were still Many other singers whom they did back up for.
Not only were this group GREAT singers; but they never got into trouble or had bad publicity. They were all fine Gentlemen. A couple of years after we Met the guys; the one who sang bass left the group and they hired Ray Walker. All of my family knew who Ray Walker was and was very Happy for him to be working w/this Group.
Gordon Stoker was one of the most upstanding Christian Men that I have ever Met..and although I haven't seen him in MANY years; I am saddened by his death. I send prayers and condolences to his entire family and to all of his MANY admirers. And to whomever it is that believes that is a photo of Ray Walker is just mistaken! Ray Walker has a much longer face than Gordon. I think this is a photo of Gordon which was made when he was very young.
My prayers and sympathy go out to Gordon's family and those Co-peformers who are still with us.

This sweet man was my neighbor in Nashville. I love him and his wife Jean like family. What a funny, kind and gentle man. Thanks for being my Nashville guide for the time I was there. Without you, I would never have gone behind the scenes of the Nashville music scene or met "famous folks". My two fondest memories are going out to dinner with you and Jean and driving around to see all of the "tacky Christmas decorations" and coming home from work one day to find you planting trees in my yard because you ran out of room in yours! Godspeed to you my sweet friend and thank you for such fun memories I will always treasure.
