So sorry to hear of your loss. Gordon was the kindest, gentlest and most humble man I have ever met. I truly enjoyed our conversations any time I saw him.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Remembering Gordon and all the Durkee family this summer at Lake Elmore.
Condolences to the Durkee family. Gordon was always kind and friendly, this is evidenced by the outporing of emotions recorded in these notes. He was to Marshfield, what Jimmy Stewart's character, George Bailey, was to Bedford Falls in the movie Its a Wonderful Life. He was loved and respected by many. God bless you.
Like to thank Connie and Family for sharing Gordon with all of us in marshfield.

Connie and family,
I am so sorry for your loss and the loss of my true friend. The memories of our Maine trips, deer camp, ice fishing trips, P&H truck stop and all the hunter safety courses we did together are fond memories indeed! We will all feel the hole in our hearts without Gordie here with us. Let your memories ease your heart.
Connie, Billy, Bobbie, Betty, Betsy, Becky and family. I know that you have lost such an incredible part of your family but please find strength in the love that Gordie had for all of you with enough left to share with all of us. The role he played in the lives of all the kids in the village will live on in all of us. I make a promise to all of you to carry on the things he taught me. I loved your dad and I will never forget him.

My sympathy to the Durkee family. I worked with Mr. Durkee when I was a senior in high school and a few years after. That was back in 1964!! But I remember him well. Always happy, always helpful and a all around good guy. I'm sure he will be missed.
To the Durkee Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time.
Betty, Becky & Bestsy - I was so sorry to hear about your Dad. He sounds like he was a wonderful husband, father and friend to so many. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.
Dear Connie and family
Ellie and I were shocked to hear of Gordon's death. He and I go way back in time. He rode with me to work at National Life for over 30 years. Army National Guard. Vermont State Guard. I remember all the good times we had as young people with your folks. Did not seem to matter how many of us were "hanging out" they were always happy to see us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Harold "Spud" and Ellie Gibson, Crossville TN
He will be so missed by all of us. We are so sad for your loss! Sending our love.
To the Durkee Family

Dear Connie & Family,
Richie & I were so sorry to hear of Gordon's passing. He was such a fun person to be around and could make everyone laugh so easily. He will be missed. May all the wonderful memories help to keep him close in your heart. Our thoughts and prayers are with you
Gordon was a true gentlemen and had the biggest heart on earth. Speaking both for myself and for the Village of Marshfield, he had an outstanding sense of "doing the right thing" for the Village and for everyone in it. He is now and will always be missed.
I'm sorry I didn't know Gordon--his obituary makes you wish you had known him. And the family I do know is a tribute to what a fine man he was. May you bring each other peace and comfort over time.
So sorry to hear. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Gordon was one of the most kind hearted person I was blessed to know.
To the Durkee Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Gordon was my first Boss at National Life. He was always such a great person to work for. Always laughing and joking. We were all a bunch of young kids and some of us are still there today because of Gordon.
Love to you all.
Betty, Betsy and Becky ~ I am so sorry for your loss. Your father was one-of-a-kind, I'll miss him stopping in the office. My heart goes out to your entire family, and what an amazing family it is....Love you all so much ~Amanda LaCasse
Bill, Robin, and family, sending prayers for you, let your cherished memories and love of family and friends comfort you.
Connie & Family,
I was so very sorry to hear about Gordon. My heart is heavy with sorrow. I have so many wonderful memories though, of the stories about my mom and dad tooling around with you Connie, and Gordon. Gordon was a special friend to my father but the memories and the stories to be passed on will be cherished forever; from their ice fishing escapades to cribbage nights and their Masonic meeting nights! Gordon will forever be in all our hearts and may your memories ease the pain over time.
To My Friends -
