I met "Gordy" in 1966, shortly after he was hired by IBM. We both worked for the Field Engineering Division, servicing a wide variety of equipment. We discovered quickly that we both played guitar, and soon became guitar buddies. Gordy was a trained musician on Piano, Guitar, and Bass. I learned a lot from him. Over the years we played at many IBM events. In the 70s, we played monthly at a large Nursing Center on the west side of El Paso. After our retirement in the early 90s, Gordy joined a small band that I had organized decades earlier. We were The Rainbow Band and played for coffee and cake at church and backyard parties, and Good Sam functions, and most often, just for our own enjoyment. He and Shirley attended all the special Birthday celebrations of band members.
They lived on the west side of the mountain and the rest of us lived on the east side. But he drove across town, faithfully attending all of our sessions
until about 2008 when the traffic became too much hassle. But even then we stayed in touch, by e-mail, and phone plus occasional lunches and IBM colleague get-togethers.
Gordy and Shirley were good company and good friends for a half century. We have many fond memories of them. Chris & Max Crow
