Not sure what to say?

I was shocked to read about Gordie's death. For the last 12 years, I had enjoyed being his neighbor here on County Road. I didn't see him very often but when we connected, I enjoyed his sense of humor and pithy comments. I will miss him.

I'm so sorry to read about Gordie passing on. I went to school with Gordie, , technically, I was a year behind him.
I hadn't seen him only but once after he graduated . He was a very active one at Waitsfield High School functions and well liked in school. My Condolences to the family, he will be missed by his family for sure. Deanna Bettis

That special smile will always be missed. I enjoyed working with Gordie throughout the many years at SPPI. He had a special humor for dealing with life's day to day hiccups.

Sarah and Ryan, Linda, and the rest of the family,
My deepest sympathies. While I didn't know Gordie until recently, I certainly enjoyed our chats at the baseball games. He sure did love his grandchildren! May God give you peace at this difficult time.

I was sorry to hear about Gordies passing from a former coworker at Simmonds Precision yesterday. May he rest in peace.
I worked with Gordie on several large projects while at Simmonds. He was a dedicated employee and a good friend and in spite of the many day to day work issues he always could find something good to say about the people and the projects we were working on. He had many friends at Simmonds and will be missed by all. My prayers go out to all his family members.

We are very sorry to hear of Gordie's passing. He was a good neighbor and friend over the years. He will be missed. Gary & Madeline Barclay Middlebury, Vt

I am so sorry to hear of Gordies passing. I worked with him for many years at Goodrich. He was so kind and had a smile that could not be forgotten.

May the comfort of the memories you forged bring comfort and love at this time of great loss.
