Dear SIs, We are so sorry for the loss of your dear Gordon. We hope that you find comfort in your memories and the support of family and friends. I (Mary) will not be able to attend the service as I am taking my mother to her winter home in Florida. I will call you when I get back. All our love, Mary, Rob, and Vanessa Colley

Dear Sis,
I'm so sorry for your loss... Gordy will certainly' be missed by so many, not the least of which is his fellow Repasz Band members. I cannot tell you how entertaining it was to sit near him & share stories or a joke here & there! He made our caravan trips to Lake Placid a blast! And, what an incredibly talented musician!

I hope the good memories will carry you through difficult times ahead.

With prayers of comfort...

Sis - just wanted to let you know how much Gordy will be missed. He is the reason that I have been in the Repasz Band for the last 12 years. He was a great musician & friend. I learned so much from him.

Sis, I am so sorry for your loss! I know you loved him dearly and he was your best friend. Not many marriages are like that anymore. Gordo was one of a kind. He always had a smile on his face and a joke to tell. I met him at a Repasz Band rehearsal 22 years ago and he quickly became a very good friend and mentor. He helped to make me a better musician. I will never forgot our 8 hours trips to Lake Placid (he wasn't allowed to drive after the first year because he terrified me!) the many bands we played in together (Repasz, Teteque, Imperials), the pits we played in High School Musicals, the band festivals.... He was always there by my side and I will miss him greatly. I'm even more thankful that I met him because I got to meet YOU. The two of you are my family and I love you both dearly. You have a heart of gold and an amazing spirit. I am honored to have you both in my life. Gordo will be missed....

Ah, Sis. While I don't recall meeting Gordon with you, I certainly now remember him from Sides! My husband, Bernie, looked at his photo and said, "He was in Consistory with me. We always had a chat at Sides, too." Please know we are keeping you and your entire family in our prayers and thoughts.

Only today I became aware of the loss of Gordon. In my early career in the Navy, Gordon was an important mentor to my Navy career. He was a talented musician, dedicated Navy professional, and a dear friend. I think I last saw him while on tour with the Navy Band in 1993. He will be missed.
