Monday, August 6, 2018Gordon was an inspiring and dedicated pathologist. We considered him part of our "UNC Family". His unwavering support of the UNC Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine was greatly appreciated. He never missed attending our educational conferences, and his gentle kindness was a model for us all. We will miss him very much.

Monday, August 6, 2018Our most sincere condolences to Cristina, Derek, Heather, Stuart, Margo, Mandy and their families since Gordon will be missed very much! Although Gordon was not necessarily a religious man, he exhibited many of the qualities that the Good Book encourages us to develop: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, mildness, self-control (Galatians 5:22,23). The qualities that he exhibited quite noticeably are two that the Good Book repeatedly emphasize: love (1Corinthians 13:1-2,4-8) and humility (Proverbs 15:33; 18:12; Colossians 3:12). We pray that God (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) will comfort Gordon's loved ones in dealing with his loss.

Sunday, August 5, 2018I have nothing but love, admiration and good memories for my Uncle Gordon. I loved his close-lipped smile and bright eyes. He always showed humor and humility without judgement and made you feel totally comfortable - - even though he was one of the most intelligent people I've known. Love to his wonderful family that will embrace his legacy.

Friday, August 3, 2018Jane & I send our condolences to all of Gordon’s family. We both were in his class in both Jr High and at Central High School. Jane (Teague) also went to grammar school with him and lived down the street on Shadow Lane. He was one of the nicest guys I ever knew and have fond memories of studying and playing golf together. We were not surprised and proud of his successful career. I’m sure he was a wonderful husband, parent and grandfather. We are both thankful that we got to spend time with Gordon at our 50th Central High Reunion and our class will miss him with fond memories at our 60th Reunion in October. Peace be with you.

Friday, August 3, 2018Gordon was such a kind and gentle man, and most of all a most wonderful father. His love and patience with Derek, who we have known for many years through Special Olympics, was exceptional. We will miss you very much!

Thursday, August 2, 2018Gordon was a dear and truly noble person. He was the kindest and most considerate person I have ever met. I was fortunate to have worked on many NTP pathology projects with Gordon over the years. He was extremely intelligent and an excellent pathologist; he always did his very best and never left a stone unturned. He worked long and hard (as long as he had his Sheetz coffee latte in hand!). I relied on him often to help me work through diagnostic dilemmas. Gordon had an unquenchable thirst for all new developments in the health sciences and made a point of going to as many seminars as he could fit in around all his projects. Gordon had a great sense of humor and I enjoyed his "little stories" about events from his past. I also enjoyed hearing him talk so fondly of Christina and the kids/grandkids-it made me smile. I will miss him very much as will all his colleagues at NTP, CRL, ILS and EPL.
