Gordon was the eldest of my first cousins. I have fond memories of childhood times spent with him at the family’s various homes around Britain. His artistic talents were exceptional of course. But more importantly, he was a good human being and it’s so sad that we have all lost him. Love to all the family, Adrian, Jane, Will & Abi

Mr Adrian Thorp

Please accept our love and thoughts, for such a wonderful man as Gordon. We were so lucky to have met him and have great memories of him sitting in the Spa Sun Court laughing, listening to Jonathon and even dancing at the concerts. Lots of love, Kathy, Graham and the boys x

Mr & Mrs Terry and Mary Crump

Dear Val, Jonathan and Matt, We are saddened by your loss. Gordon was such a lovely caring person, full of fun and laughter. I didn't know him well, but his good humour always seemed to penetrate through to all around. And what an artistic talent he had. The humorous Christmas cards, so well composed, and guaranteed to make us laugh. Gordon fought hard over the past 2 years, but lived life to the full, giving you Val, and 'the boys', wonderful memories. May these memories sustain you, and bring you some comfort. We are feeling your pain at this time. Hold tight to these thoughts. Gordon had a full and happy family life. We wish you, Jonathan and Matt, some form of peace, and courage, to face the days ahead. You are never alone. God bless you. With love Jennifer and Graham Rogers x

Gordon was truly one of the most amazing people we have met, his talent was off the scale but he combined that with being a really down to earth and friendly person. Swavesey Scouts would not have continued to have their own meeting place without Gordon's enthusiasm and practical skills. The mark of a life well lived is the memories you leave with those that remain and the mark of a good parent can be seen in the children, in both cases Gordon's marks are bold, bright and long lasting.

Dear Val, Jonathan and Matt, I am thinking of you all. Gordon was a lovely man, a talented artist and a good friend. We shall all miss him but I am grateful that I knew him. Love, Nicky.

Mrs Nicky Carne

Dear Val, Jonathan and Matt, we are so sorry for your loss. Gordon's boundless passion, positivity and enthusiasm for the people and pursuits that he loved was truly infectious and our little chats out on the street were always a bright spot for me regardless of the topic. I have so many fond memories from childhood parties and school trips to the time Gordon helped us move back home from London during the hottest summer in half a century, a difficult and tumultuous upheaval made so much easier by Gordon's calm, determined attitude and that wonderful sense of humour that was never far away. All of us here are wishing you all peace and rest during and after this difficult time. With love, Robin & Giorgia.

Mr Robin Carne

A sun-tanned face and a beaming smile, a loving embrace and a warm heart, that's how we will remember Gordon. Sending love from all of us to all of you, Uncle Terry, Aunty Margaret, Fiona and Steve xxxx

The world thinks it's going through a bad time but you are all going through the very worst. My love to you Val and to your boys. My number is 07968 735355. Please call when you feel able to. Look after each other xx


Its always about the life lived, the people loved and the impression made. Gordon did all of those things in abundance and I am so proud to have him as my friend. he was a truly inspirational man in many ways, sorely missed but truly loved and respected. You can never ask for more than that. From all of of us, myself, Colin, Graham , Laura and James we send our love and thoughts xxx

Mrs Yvonne & Colin Webster

You were both an important part of my childhood and Gordon was an artistic inspiration to many of us as well. I'm so pleased that I got to catch up with you again recently, sit and chat, and see you happy in your allotment. Gordon really embraced life and love - what a wonderful way to be! Much love from our family here. xxx
