Passed away with Alzheimer's: June 2006
Gordon was founder and president of an investment banking and financial advisory services firm. In his lifetime, he earned four degrees, spoke four languages and pursued four passions: climbing, hiking, sailing and fine woodworking. Then he heard four words that changed his life: "You have Alzheimer's disease."
After receiving his diagnosis, Gordon developed another passion: nature photography. Although he didn't get a chance to share his story, his family has generously shared his photographs with us.
