Gordon was an amazing uncle. He was always a larger than life to me. I loved his smile and warm loving personality. There was never a dull moment! I remember staying at his house for soccer camps when I was younger and loving the energy of the home. Capture the flag was always a blast with him. Every interaction was a small gift. He lived in a manner that made his mother and God proud of him. His goodness will forever be a blessing and inspiration to those he temporally leaves behind. What a man. I will always remember him.

Although we are cousins we lived quite far apart, therefore, I didn't know Gordon well but from the comments and love and respect from his family I feel like my life has been cheated from a relationship with a wonderful man. He has left a legacy that most would want to leave as well for their posterity and friends. His life was not always good, but he took everything in stride and did the best he could to rectify the situation. My hope for the future is to become a good a person as he was so that I too might qualify to be in the same circle as he is when its my time to pass through the veil. and that I then perhaps can have a relationship with my cousin and become acquainted with such a sweet spirit as Gordon Duval. He joins a wonderful family Love from Cousin, Lois Duval Clegg.

Gordon was such an important part of my legal career and I learned how to analyze cases and present oral arguments under his direction, but more importantly, Gordon taught me the importance of being kind and looking for the good in everyone, regardless of who they were. It didn’t matter if they were our client or the opposing party, or even an extremely frustrating opposing attorney, Gordon helped me remember we are all just trying to do our best and everyone deserves respect. One of his greatest qualities was he ability to see the good in everyone. Thank you Gordon! Kendra, our love, thoughts, and prayers are with you.

Uncle Gordon was always kind to me. He always made me feel that I was important . He was a quiet force for good and I wish I had spent more time with him but every memory of him is only a happy one. I struggle to think world without him. He was one of the people on this planet that you knew you could turn to in a crisis and he would calmly give you the right course of action. I am grateful to see his kindness and wisdom in my cousins. Enjoy your rest Uncle Gordon, heaven know you have work hard enough for it. You will missed and always loved

Uncle Gordon was always so good to me! I was so sad to hear of his passing. 💔

I will always remember when he picked me up from the airport and brought me to BYU for college as an 18 year old. I’d never lived outside of Alaska and was scared to be on my own and out of Alaska. Gordon and Kendra volunteered to bring me to the dorms. He gave me a pep talk, passed on some hard earned wisdom and told me he was just a phone call away if I ever needed anything. I appreciated the way he opened up his home to me for family dinners and holidays for years to come.
I also cherish the memories I have of catching up with Gordon while visiting Utah during the holidays.

Lastly, I loved the fact that I shared an anniversary with Gordon and Kendra. It was so cool that they came to my wedding as they celebrated their 25th. I’ll never forget as a kid watching Gordon and Kendra dance at their own wedding reception. I’d never seen anyone dance so beautifully before.
What a talented, wonderful person Gordon was. I will really miss him. My heart and prayers go out to Kendra and his family.💙❤️💚

Uncle Gordon was always happy. I remember when we would go to his house it was always busy and a million things going on, but he was happy to have you there. Gordon was always the patriarch of our family and led with an unfailing sense of optimism. Even when it seemed like nothing was going right, Gordon was always eagerly awaiting “Tuesday.” My favorite thing was when you ended a phone conversation he would always say “sure love ya!” Sure Love ya, Uncle Gordon
