Every time I go to the Poinsett Club I will have a martini and think of Gordon and how he could make a boring Realtor Function much more fun with a martini 🍸 from the bar down stairs. He was truly a gem and will be remembered with great fondness by so many .

I recall very positive attitudes and encouragement from Gordon during my high school experiences in sports at Paris High School and later in senior running events with the Greenville Track Club. Gordon was not hesitant to mention you as a friend and recognize you in running events on those special occasions. He was a mentor for his selfless attitude carried with him for all the time I knew him. I know he has left a good legacy for his family to follow.

Please accept our sincere condolences. I believe Gordon was a dear classmate of our treasured cousin, Susan Hannon Bracknell. We remember him from his time on Main Street where his shop was near Cochran’s where my mother, Carolyn Gregory, worked for many years. Always a sharp dresser and such a gentleman!

I attended Paris School with Gordon for 11 years. We played all sports together in high school as well as lifeguarding at Paris Mountain State Park. I remember Gordon as a fierce competitor and an outstanding player in football, basketball, baseball, and track and field. He was outstanding in every sport and a great teammate. He was a great friend and will be truly missed at Paris School reunions. May God truly bless and comfort Diane and his family.
