Gordon Oakley-A Wonderful Life
In the late 1990s, I was asked to compile a history of Gordon's life for submission to an awards comittee of some description.I can't remember quite what it was after ten years, but Uncle Gordon was being secretly nominated for an award to recognise all of the amazing work he had done for Rotary, in particular. I have just found the resulting pages amongst my records, and rather than re-type them into my blog I have just scanned the pages in question directly into the blog.
Sadly, Uncle Gordon died before he could receive any official recognition for his work....not that it would have bothered such a modest man at all.
