Mr.Brown was one of the nicest people I knew. He always took the time to stop and talk to me whenever we saw him out and about. Very sorry for the loss.
I am so sorry to hear of Gordon's passing. His family are in my thoughts and prayers. So glad we got to see you in 2007 the Wagschal family reunion. RIP Gordy.
I went to High School with Gordon and remember him as being kind and always having that smile. Condolences to the family.
Truly I will miss a good friend for a number of years. So sad to hear of Gordy's passing
Gordon, as the eldest of Paul and Mary Ferjanec's many grandchildren, was our leader and role model. I remember best his broad smile and good humor (very much like his dad, my Uncle "Brownie"). It was wonderful to re-connect in 1996 to celebrate Grandma's 100th birthday. Condolences and best wishes to all who survive and love Cousin Gordy.
I lived next door to your parents for 16 years; I will always remember your Dad's smile, laughter, and kindness. I was blessed to have known him. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers. With my deepest sympathy, Debra Burrows
Gordon, I was too young to get to know you well growing up. My clearest memories of you are how very proud your mom (my Aunt Ann) always was of her two fine boys and then of how very proud you were of your two beautiful daughters when you introduced them at grandma Ferjanec's 100th birthday party. Tracy and Cheryl, I'm so sorry for your loss.
Although we have always lived 3,000 miles apart, "Uncle Gordy" was always in our hearts, which made him as close as if he lived next door. Memories & the telling of stories and speaking of Uncle Gordy, Aunt Delores and the girls,Chery and Tracie, made us feel close and familiar. We are so saddened by his passing. We wish we lived closer, now, to help you girls at this terrible time. Know that we are thinking of you every day. We are going to plant an everygreen here in Idaho by our Dad to honor our Brother/Uncle's life. He will be missed by us. May he be at peace on his journey to reunite with his wife and family. They are sure to enjoy a good game of pinnacle. His memory will never die and we'll love him forever as we always have. Take care. Love, Ann, Sallie and Debbie
Some of my fondest memories of growing up are with the three guys (billy, gary and gordon). You let me tag along on our trips through the woods and sledding the knox hill in the winter. I was so happy to meet your wife and daughters at Grandma Ferjanec's 100th birthday. God Bless you Gordon and thanks for all my memories.
Cheryl and Tracy we are so sorry for your loss. Both your Mom and Dad were special people. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
My heart goes out to you all. I knew all of Gordy'ys family including the Ferjannec's. The first to go was "Billie Ferjanec, his cousin and neighbor, when we were still in High school. Our group of friends gymned together in th Sokol and tose times were very happy as are all my memories of thse day. may his soul and all souls of the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen Vilo
