Matt: Yes Gordon did have many health issues to deal with but he took them in typical Davis stride. Talked to his daughter today and while in the last days Gordon is comfortable. I know he appreciates all of the members care and understanding. Quite a guy. John.

John, Thanks for the update. Gordon is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. Never rattled always calm and turned out some of the nicest leather to be seen.

Sorry to hear that. I've got two pieces of Davis leaher that were good the day I got them and every bit as good today-- 28 years later.

Never met him but have met his son who is just the way his father has been described above.
