  11. I am so sorry to hear of Gordon’s passing. I was saddened to hear of his passing today. I worked closely with Gordon at Dresser (Ashcroft) for a good number of years. I knew Gordon as an innovative thinker. He was always looking for a better way of doing things, not content with the business as usual approach. When we were not having conversation about the job, the other topic was more times than not that of family and the grandchildren he spoke of with such affection. I will miss our chats. God bless and comfort his family. Gordon will surely be missed by many.
