  1. A lovely tribute to Gordon. We met Gordon with ACT Today and relished his visits – such a personality and so many great sayings – we still quote Gordon today! The system he developed for us lives on and so will our fond memories of Gordon.

  2. Farewell Gordon.
    I did enjoy a chat.
    One of the good guys.
    The world somewhat less.
    Tireless in the community.
    Will be missed.

  3. A sad day but grateful that I had the pleasure of knowing Gordon for most of my life. To Evie, Trish, Rob, Nick and Penel, lots of virtual hugs from over the border in SA.

  4. Deepest Sympathy to Evie and family on the sad passing of Gordon. While we couldn’t attend in person it was a privilege to be able to share your farewell and tribute to him via internet. While Gordon only came into our lives during the last decade we always enjoyed time spent with him. Gail and Barry Briggs

  5. Gordon was one of my best friends. We met through our mutual business, 40 years ago. He was entrepreneurial, funny, loved to travel and a real good soul. We accomplished so much and grew together. There were the never ending jokes including the regular corny ones we always asked him to tell again because he was so good at them; his actions,; laughing at the ending before he got there,; he was infectious and, Evie, you were so patient! An unforgettable and truly faithful husband, brother, father and luckily my friend. Go well ’til we meet again along The Yellow Brick Road. Goodbye mate.
