Realized that I made an error with my posting.
I stated the church being St. Mary's.
Actually it was St. John's..
Recalling memories of Gordie & his sisters from our "yesteryears".
My brother, Duke (deceased) & I used to spend our summers up in Antigo.
Many days we'd walk out to their home to spend the day playing...
One of my favorite 'things' to do was to sit at their 'players piano'. & produce music !
Oh for our 'childhood' memories !
Last time I saw Gordy was at St. Mary's Church when they had an Italian Supper.
We enjoyed sitting with Gordy, a couple of his sister's & our friends Jerry & Marilyn Metz.
Extending our condolences to Gordy's
Barb & Dennis 'Duke' Finkler
He worked at the hospital same time I have and he was always smiling. Such a nice man!
I was a caretaker of gordie the last view months he is deeply loved and already missed one of my favorite residents for sure 💕💙
I remember Gordy from the hospital and also remember that he bowled on the hospital league. He was always so nice to everyone. Thoughts and prayers for family
So many great memories of Gord, stopping down to Heartbreakers on Friday afternoons. He always had a smile. I am sorry for your loss.
