Gordon B. Vik was born November 5, 1926 on the family farm in Current Lake Township, near Balaton, MN to H.G. and Agnes (Mickelson) Vik. He attended country school district 45. Gordie left school after the 10th grade. He worked several jobs until he started on the railroad. Gordon retired after 36 years. In 1994, Gordie moved into O’Brien Courts where he has resided since. His passion for trains continued until his death. Gordie was a quiet man with a dry sense of humor that would make you laugh. No matter how much pain he was in, he always found a smile for you. He had a special place in his heart for family and friends. He loved going to Las Vegas on vacation with friends. Gordie also enjoyed going to the lake in Glenwood until his health problems made him give it up. He also enjoyed fishing and playing golf. Gordie left his mark on family and friends in his own quiet way. He will be missed.
Gordie is survived by his siblings: Marvin (Lois) Vik of Farmington, Joyce Kreun of Ramsey, MN, James (Jeanie) Vik of Redwood Falls and Maxine Robbins of Tracy; good friend Alice DeBaere of Marshall; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, two brothers and one sister.
