Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • I have fond memories of my Uncle Gordon. My brothers and I enjoyed going to the basement of their home in Transconia, to see and play with his gigantic, train display. I also remember how cordial he was when I visited him in his office at the School of Medicine. He was a kind and gentle man, and will be missed by friends and family. - Posted by: Michael N.
