Gordon Charles Scribner, age 79, of Grand Rapids, passed away on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at home surrounded by family. The son of Fred Amos & Eilene Marie (Porter) Scribner he was born on January 13, 1939 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Gordon spent most of his career working several years as a manager of a gas station, and as the manager of an auto shop until his retirement. His days since mostly consisted of unexpected road trips he and his wife loved to go on frequently. Gordon also enjoyed riding his golf cart up and down their area in Grand Rapids. He is known for the goofy jokes and stories he always loved to share with friends and family. He always knew how to keep everyone laughing, and never knew if they were tall tales or the truth. Gordon liked to call them “mostly fibs,” and he would tell whoppers just to see everyones reactions! He will be greatly missed.
