We are so very sorry to share with you in sorrow over the loss of our colleague, friend, fellow volunteer, and a leader in our community, Bill Gordon. Bill died on Saturday, June 11. He was on a bicycling ride, and he had a heart attack. Friends and EMT personnel tried to revive him, to no avail. Arrangements for the calling hours on Friday and memorial service on Saturday can be found in Bill’s obituary, found here: http://www.rutherfordfuneralhomes.com/obituaries/William-J-Gordon/ Roy Burnham set up a Go-Fund-Me site for a park bench in front of the Old Stone Presbyterian Church at 36 and Hodges Rd in Delaware, Ohio. This church was very kind to the riding group that Bill and Roy were part of... setting out coolers of drinks for them so that they could have a rest stop on their regular loop-ride. The excess of funds raised will go to charities that Bill supported, including Pedal-with-Pete. To participate: https://www.gofundme.com/29e364c4?viewupdates=1&utm_source=internal&utm_medium=email&utm_content=cta_button&utm_campaign=upd_n Bill Gordon helped us on Pedal-with-Pete in many ways, most notably as Door Prize Director. He was a do-er, a thinker, an advisor, and an encourager for our team. Bill had a long-term presence in the Columbus cycling community and recently took over leadership of TOSRV and other big events for Columbus Outdoor Pursuits. Bill was a gentleman, a friend, and a very can-do sort of person. Bill had a gift in relating to people with a soft, relaxed manner that made you feel part of the team. He leaves a huge void. Please keep Bill's family and many, many friends and huge community in your thoughts and prayers.Posted - a year ago
