I have only known Gordon for a couple years, and we became acquainted through our U.E.L. branch where we discovered that we shared the search for elusive Smith ancestors, due to the repetition of that common name. He was always cheerful and interesting to talk to. I always thought of him too when I was researching and saw the Hawley name to which he was also connected. He will be deeply missed by his loyalist friends.
