Gordon Drake

Former Kingman resident Gordon Drake died of cancer on Sunday, Oct. 15, 2006, in Boise, Idaho. Gordon is best remembered for his loyal friendship to his neighbors and friends.

He worked at Flying "J" and also at the Ranch Market.

He served honorably in the United States Navy.

He is survived by his sister, Sharon, and nephews and nieces. Also surviving is Gordon's constant companion, "the love of his life," Mardell Hollyoway, of 22 years of love and companionship until the end.

He held numerous other friends, too many to name, close to his heart during his final struggle - an act of kindness that will never be forgotten.
