long battle with cancer. Through his years with the disease, he led both
a personal and public fight against cancer, staying at the forefront of
the latest in research and treatments, and raising awareness and
advocating for early screenings. He always maintained a positive and
humorous attitude, infectious to all around him, and he was always eager
and willing to give of his time and knowledge when it came to helping
others with their diagnosis and battle with cancer. He was also a
founding member of the Triad chapter of Golfers Against Cancer. Gordon
