This site is dedicated to the memory of Gordon.

Gordon was born in Gillingham Kent on April 07, 1926. He is much loved and will always be remembered by all his friends and family.
He joined the Fire Service at Chatham 1942 aged 16, and joined the army in April 1944 in the West Kent Regiment.
After leaving the army in 1945, Gordon went to work at Easyworks Gillingham Kent where he met Avril and they were married on the 12th August 1950, Avril's father knew Gordon was okay when the dog accepted him!  Their son David was born 6th June 1951 and their daughter Christine on 21st November 1955.   Until 1958 they lived in Wingham Close, Gillingham, they then moved some 200 metres to 8 Brabourne Avenue, where they remained until moving to 202 Leeson Drive, Ferndown, Dorset in 2001.
Gordon spent a number of years working for Ready Mix Concrete at Rochester and was involved in the building on the M2, in particular the Medway bridge.  Later he worked as a manager for Tyrecare Ltd and then Brown Brothers as a garage equipment engineer. He retired from Brown Brothers aged 60 as a result of a shoulder injury.
Having said that, he spent many years after that acting as a surrogate father to his daugther's children James and William, also helping his son with a loft conversion and trying to keep his son's Yorkshire Terriers from running wild. He was also the founder of the 18th Gillingham scout troop, which he started because his son David wanted to be a cub scout.  He and Avril went on to have many years involved in caravaning  where Avril was involved with the committees and Gordon running events.  They spent the last 14 years at Ferndown enjoying their retirement, although for the last few years Gordon had become more and more frail and forgetful. 
He will be sorely missed and remembered with great affection by his wife, family and friends who all love him dearly.
