I counted the church's money with Gordon when I was a member of Good Shepherd Church. Gordon taught me everything I needed to know about counting so I could fill in for him. He was a very patient and kind teacher. I think about him whenever I count at my new church. He will be with me always. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Deepest sympathy for your loss.

Sending our thoughts and prayers to Steve and Denise as you begin your grief journey. Uncle Gordon always had a kind word to say -- I liked that about him. He will be missed, but remembered.

Sensitive, caring,committed and fun are only a few thoughts that come to mind when I reflect on the years I worked with Gordon at AAL. He was a class act in every respect, truly cared about our members and had a lasting influence on my approach to my work. His legacy and influence continues to this day. I feel honored that our paths crossed.

I want to share with Gordon's family something they already know--Gordon was ONE CLASS ACT. Years ago, Gordon contacted me at Schenck & Associates to develop a computerized solution to conduct the election of the AAL Board of Directors. Together, we not only developed a highly successful system, it also gave me an insight into Gordon and why he epitomized the best of what made AAL great. He will be missed--few could measure up to the quality and high values he represented. Larry Schmitz, CCP,CMC President Common Sense Solutions LLC

Gordon was my boss's boss when I started at AAL in 1971. He was a quiet man, but well respected by those who knew him and worked with him. He was a very active member at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church when we joined in 1975. He will be missed!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Attending church services will not be the same without having Gordon close-by in our pew/area. He will be greatly missed.
