    We still can’t believe this. What a great human being he was, so calm and thoughtful. We loved sharing a number of New Year eves with him and Anne. Our thoughts are with Anne at this very sad time.

    Hi Cam
    I could not say much when I met. I am sure you will recall when you played cricket on Saturdays I met Gordon on many accessions. We used to have one on one chat and realised what a devoted father he was as there were only a few fathers who stayed back to watch their sons play. He was a great man and heard a lot about him today. I am glad I made it today but would have preferred to meet you and your dad under different circumstances. Please take care. Wish you and your family all the very best.

    It is by sheer coincidence that several years after meeting Gordon that his grandson and my grandson have become best friends. I shared Italian classes with Gordon at Mitcham Community House and later at Parkwood U3A. Each week we all read in Italian from our notebook something we had written about our past week to share with the class. Except for Gordon! He read his homework from his computer via a hotspot on his phone because this enabled him to enhance his story and enthuse us all with photographs. In particular, he was delighted to share stories and photos of his new home and holidays, and it was as though he felt morally obliged to mention his visit to the Romeo and Juliet balcony occurred due to a purely fictitious story. One evening after setting up his IT network he answered his phone and without further ado he calmly dismantled his network and quietly excused himself from class, saying no more than that he was needed at home. So, he was an enthusiastic and generous Italian student and a respected gentleman because he put his family first. My deepest sympathies to everyone in Gordon’s family.
