  2. Many years ago I served with Gordon at Namao in 435 Squadron Telecom and fondly remember his VW with key attached to the rear! those were the good days, no money but lots of great friends. I had heard that Gordon had retired to the Okanagan and tried to contact him some twelve years ago, obviously without success.
    May I extend my sincere condolences to Colleen and family on their loss, Gordon was a wonderful and sincere man.

    Brian Naylor.

  8. Hello Bill and Debbie,

    I just wanted to say I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I could be at the service – or at least that I was scheduled at COTB, but I can’t. I hope it is truly a time of honouring your dad. May you know Jesus’ love and presence in a very real way during this time. Love you! Lynette
