Gordon emerging from one of his beloved aeroplanes
Gordon loved the peace and tranquillity of the countryside. A brilliant artist and designer, he enjoyed observing Nature from the structural effect of bare trees in winter and reflections on a glassy loch, to the formation of clouds across an evening sky. He was never the greatest of walkers (!), preferring to sit and look, take photos or best of all - to combine Nature with one of his other passions and fly over a landscape in a small plane to get a bird's-eye perspective. Full of fun, love and laughter, Gordon's death left a huge gap in the lives of his wife, Irene, their five children (Graham, Paul, Alison, Sarah and Vanessa) and partners, and eleven grandchildren, but he'll always be remembered with a big smile, probably a giggle and a profound love that will endure.
In memory of Dads best friend George Dare, who joined him this year. May the two of you grow even closer together. Love Ness and Boys xxxx
