He attended rural schools and was active in 4-H, but left school after graduating from the eighth grade to work full-time on the family farm. He was the first person in Augusta to make the sauce for the original style baked beans.
Gordon was a meticulous carpenter whose work was much admired. In later years, Gordon enjoyed going for drives and pointing out the many homes and businesses he either helped to build or remodel.
Throughout the years he also helped with many building and remodeling projects for each of his children and several grandchildren, as well as for other family members and friends. There was no project that he was incapable or unwilling to tackle and you could rest assured that it would be beautifully done.
They remodeled the structure, turning it into a lovely home where many wonderful memories were made. Gordon and Ruth also raised a vegetable garden and tended a large raspberry patch, grape arbor, and small apple orchard.
They enjoyed walking in the yard with visitors, especially children who enjoyed the almost park-like setting.
Gordon also enjoyed watching the birds that came to the feeders he placed just outside the large living room window.
They were active members of their square dance club, wearing the beautiful matching costumes made by Ruth. They also loved to travel and had visited most of the Continental United States, although Gordon preferred to let someone else drive!
Whenever the kids and grand-kids came to visit, Gordon always made sure ice cream was served and he was always ready for a game of cards or Racko. He liked working crossword and jigsaw puzzles or tinkering in the garage or basement. He enjoyed his role as grandpa immensely, whether it was wrestling on the floor, reading storybooks, watching cartoons, shooting baskets, giving wagon rides behind the riding lawn mower, doing the hula hoop, or giving birthday spankings.
Gordon continued to live in the home he and Ruth loved following her death on February 1, In Novemberhe moved to Grace Woodlands. Gordon will be remembered as a kind, quiet, honest, and hard-working man, with a tender heart and a very soft spot for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
