The loss of a parent is always a difficult journey. My heart goes out to all of you in this time of mourning, may the Spirit of our Father in heaven be with you in this time of need. When I think back to remember times shared I'm reminded of Christmas eves together. As a family we would have diner at grandmas house, and then go out driving around looking for Santa, which was really just a distraction for us kids, while your mom and dad would dash home and put presents under the tree. We would eventually show up at your house and realize we missed Santa again. But must have been good, an ever consuming worry, as he left gifts for us to enjoy. They always managed with impeccable good timing to have everything ready, makes you wonder how it could be done without cell phones. Maybe it really was Santa? What a blessing to have had parents that loved us and cared for us. God Bless Harry & Donna Spalding

gordy was one of the koolest guys I have met in my journey of 66 years; I was his shell oil rep back in the late 70's and early 80's. that guy could play and sponsor softball as well as drink beer with us youngsters like no one else could after the games- I still have my Gordy's team shell uniform. I will always cherish time spent with Gordy and his friend Chuck Miller. I spoke to Gordy last in 2012 visiting my son who lives in Racine. I plan to fish and drink with him again in my after life. what a kool guy! Greg Sherf

Gordy has been a true blessing to our family. Gordy's memories will remain in your hearts forever as a kind and generous man. We have had so many great adventures with Gordy over the past 25 years. Going out for dinner with Gordy and Dona in the early years. From SuperBowl XXXI in New Orleans and SuperBowl XLV in Texas, to our annual Green Bay Packer games at Lambeau field, to Fredericksburg and Grapevine, TX to Three Lakes, WI. Traveling with Gordy and Diane in recent years was always a pleasure and we cherished our time together. Gordy always had a smile and a story for you. Gordy will be missed by ALL! Our sincere condolences to Diane and the entire Spalding family. Go Pack!!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Gordy taught me a lot 1957 - 1960 when it was still Smith's Shell. Had tons of good times away from work, but also at work. Bowling followed by Real Chili down on Wells. Every day he gave me a couple of bucks to next door to the bakery for Hard Rolls and butter. He taught me how to drive stick shift and overhaul automatic transmissions and most important he taught me a lot about life. Quite a guy.
