WHEW! When I saw the name posted here, my first thought was that he had passed away. Good to know it's not that.

I haven't seen Gordy in a few years, but I do remember he was quite involved in the community, particularly with youth and intramural sports...wonder if he'll still be doing that stuff in his retirement? Anyway, I don't know if I'll get a card sent to him, but I do wish the man well in his retirement.

I don't think i ever thought that my grandpa would finally retire. He has been saying this for years and my dad didnt believe it til he my grandpa told him he turned in the papers to retire. My grandpa has done alot for the mental health community here in eastern montana as well as of course all his coaching. I think this a great end to one chapter of his life and i think him and my grandma will have an amazing retirement together. He will always be Miles City blue and gold through and through..

Last I saw Gordy was in 98 playing racquetball against Veis and Kunigi at the Centra. They were doing their usual storm of swearing and yelling - music to my ears having spent a lot of great years at that place.

He can't retire - he'll go bananas sitting around in a hammock all day.

Seems I spoke before I should have.......it is Gordy's request to work his last day, March 31st, and return to Billings. He doesn't want a party; he appreciated the plans but......I think he just doesn't want to sit in a room with all of us crying. (He's been through that already)

He's not going to Billings to sit in the rocking chair; he's too young for that. Again, his address is P.O. Box 1530 - Miles City, MT 59301, if you would like to send a note or card.

Are you asking for memories to be shared here on the forum or are you not getting letters sent to the address you posted?

If you wanted them here - you didn't ask.

At the beginning, I was letting everyone know there was going to be an open house but then Gordon decided against that (a little bashful?) When a few started posting memories, I thought that was neat so if anyone wants to share anything, please do. Thanks!

Feel free to send a note or card, if you would rather.

I thought he did. He used to work with my Dad when he was Director of Education out there in the late 60's, early 70's. I stayed at Gordy's house for a while.

Hope he is doing well!

Also forgot to mention...he took me on my first Pheasant hunting trip way back when...I think it was '68 or '69.
