It’s hard to believe it’s been one year since John T. joined the ranks of Heaven 1. Today, (BK OH-XVIII President and Int’l. Conf. Rep.) John P.T. and Lois Gordon were joined by family, friends and Blue Knights from OH III, OH V, OH XII and OH XVIII to remember John T. “Rusty” Gordon.
Motorcycles and cars gathered at the Marion County Court House and were led by Police escort to the Grand Prairie Cemetery. GLRC Chaplain Rev. Richard Bartley led us in prayer and many happy and humorous memories were shared. U.S. Flags were laid around the headstone by his children.
Afterward we were invited to John and Lois’ home for lunch. Old friends reunited and new friends were made. A Weeping Cherry Tree was planted in John’s memory and a memory stone was placed at it’s base.
It is the family’s wish that this memorial will become an annual ride to sponsor a college scholarship fund for a Boy Scout, as John was an Eagle Scout.
