We are deeply saddened to report that our fellow friend, forum member, volunteer moderator and SETIzen Gordon MacKenzie Lowe died suddenly at his home in Louisville, Kentucky of heart failure, possibly on February 6th. Gordon lived alone and had no known family since his mother's death in 2017. As per his wishes, he will be buried without ceremony in Louisville. He will have a headstone if anyone wishes to visit him there (details will be provided when known.)

Gordon is already deeply missed... he was a gentleman of exemplary conduct and an integral part of the moderation team. It will not be the same here without him. Thank you for everything you did for us over the years, Gordon. You will not be forgotten.

-----------------

Update: Gordon's obituary page is here. He was interred today (Feb. 20) at Calvary Cemetery, 1600 Newburg Road, Louisville.


Gordon in happier times, with his mother Iva, and friend Vera

Oh my. This is such sad news. It was his birthday on the 15th. At least I think it was. I might have got that wrong. I'd meant to pm him anyway though, and ask him how his bunnies were doing, but didn't get round to it in the end.

Rest in peace, Gordon. You were a good friend with a heart so kind and caring. I will miss your posts, and your Christmas cards. The envelopes were just as good as their contents, and I still have them. Thank you for being the person you were. I feel truly blessed to have known you.

a hug forever, from annie

Some of the brightness has left us.

God of hope, we come to you in shock and grief and confusion of heart. Help us to find peace in the knowledge of your loving mercy to all your children, and give us light to guide us out of our darkness into the assurance of your love.

My heart was torn in two when i heard this news. I became good friends with Gordon, when he was taking care of his Mom. My husband was also ill. He had fun with his Mini-Rex Rabbits, I also had two. We traded pictures. We had many conversions about life, death, etc.

Farewell to a fine person who cared more than anyone knows.
My thoughts, prayers, wishes, hopes, etc., for Gordon.
You take care my special friend. I know in my heart you are in YOU HAPPY PLACE.

Gordon was many wonderful things, but he was kind above all else.

Eric and I are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend.
