Tragically, Gordon died as a result of the massive brain injuries he had sustained. We as a family are absolutely devastated at what has happened.

We are now having to grieve over the tragic death of Gordon who was a truly wonderful father and grandfather and was so full of life. We cannot come to terms with what has taken place and are in a state of shock.

We would appreciate privacy and space to grieve our loss at this most horrendous time."
