Sorry for the loss of a wonderful person and such a great talent. You made many hearts sing

What a nice person he was had the pleasure of meeting him at the gold coast hotel in las vegas many years ago he would have a chat with me at the pool side to all his family sorry for your sad loss what a great performer r.I.p

Loved Kentucky Rain and Can't Help Falling In love With You! Thanks for the lovely vocals!

I am from the 60's and listened to Elvis and Ricky then and now, on my old but very good condition hi fi. I still play some of their tunes at weddings where my son and I do mobile disco's. Naturally the Jordanaires completed the production of their hits. I treasure a cassette with the Jordanaires backing Ricky just before he passed away. We have lost another character, but heaven must be singing with joy.

I had the honor and pleasure of meeting The Jordanaires in Virginia Beach in June of 2000. I had the joy of getting a picture of them and was saddened to learn of Gordon's passing* May he rest in peace right beside Elvis* The group will never be the same without him. Always a fan. Marna Brantley

so sorry to hear of gordon passing away , we were fans of his singing from 7 old our deepest sympathy to his family n friends from irish rocknroll fans the heggarty twins /

I can't help but feel that Elvis and Ricky are waiting to greet Gordon with open arms. What a nice,down to earth man. I had the honor of spending a few days Gordon in 94 in North Hollywood at the Beverly Garden hotel.I loved his stories and he kept me laughing. I'll always cherish the memories. My heart goes out to the family, the Jordanaires and all who thought the world of him as I do.

It was with great sorrow that we heard of Gordon's passing! He was always kind to my family and I and we so enjoyed working with him and the Jordanaires on stage and in the recording studio. He was blessed with his experiences in life in the music business and blessed with his wife, Jean and family. May God bless his soul as our prayers go out to his family and friends.
