    I have fond memories of growing up across the street from Gordy. Even though we have a 10 year age gap, he always happily included the younger kids. I have more memories as an adult getting together with him while we were both living in Minneapolis. Gordy was a good guy. My thoughts are with his family. He will be missed.

I grew up knowing some of the Landuyt kids in various scenarios…my dad worked for gorsys dad George, Gail and Gwen we’re our babysitters, and Gary was in my class, I worked for Jr. and Mike for a short time and visited with Gordy every chance we met at the farm. RIP Gordy!
