Gordon, or “Goob” as he was affectionately known, was an avid surfer and sailor, a passionate singer and song writer, and a boat and custom surfboard builder. He was a remarkable, true individual whom many people called the most charming and entertaining person they had ever met. He was smart, witty, self-educated, and an extremely talented artist, as well as being a gifted athlete, excelling at skiing, surfing, and ice hockey. Many knew Goob as a staple of the local surf communities in Ocean Isle Beach and Wrightsville Beach, but more importantly he was a great and enduring friend to all who knew him.
