"One of the few universally liked people I have ever met. Gordie always made people laugh, he was such an upbeat guy. I have many memories of growing up with Gordie...watching WWF, playing video games and lots of neighborhood sports. When we were older, we drove to high school together and had many good conversations and laughs in the car. He was a very good person and I was lucky that he lived up the street from me when we were kids. My sincerest condolences to the Maher and Hatch families."
