My deepest sympathies to the Shive family. Gordon and the Shive family were a big part of my childhood. My family was involved with 4-H and we all showed Angus cattle together. We had so much fun at the fairs, farm show and I still remember our trip to Kentucky. Gordon was a great man and will be missed.
