We were very sorry to hear of the passing of Gordie. While I haven't seen him much in recent years I have great memories of fishing with Gordie and Brewster Park friends in the early days. Gordie was excellent at protecting our turf in the water and the channels that we fished. He became a beloved family man and that is the best accomplishment in life a man can have. Gordie and Jean have raised a fine family and that will be his lasting legacy. Our sympathy and thoughts go out to all the Harwoods. I will always remember Gordie. Bill Todd
