Walt Gordon to Be Missed By Field


This community lost one of its beloved citizens Wednesday night, December 5, when Walt Gordon passed away in Lusk. Mr. and Mrs. Gordon were long-time residents of this locality, having come here years ago from Ohio. They sold their ranch and moved to Lusk last March. They were engaged in the poultry business and worked that up to a point of perfection. Their products were known far and wide for their excellence. Mr. Gordon has been in failing health for several years. This community has missedd his fine products for some time, and now will miss his genial smile and friendliness.
