"At the age of 16 my son was severly injured a hit-and-run incident, as a pedestrian - in Maryland, the victim of a drunk driver. While Gordie had ongoing health issues, including the loss of the entire right side of his head including inner and outer right ear (deforming him), he persevered.

He had a sweet countenance, pleasant disposition (most of the time) and would help anyone in any way that he could. He died 25 years to the day that we moved to North Carolina. By rights with all of his injuries, he should have passed away on February 9, 1985 as a result of that hit-and-run. Gordie passed away on July 1, 2010 and was 41 years of age.  

The cause of death was complications associated with a seizure disorder. Seizures began generating 10 years into his recovery because his pituitary gland was damaged within the boundaries of the hit-and-run. He had little to no hormones and this wasn't discovered until 10 years in. The hormone replacement therapy (due to the pituitary) eventually caused him to require hip replacements.

Gordie received his GED and was attending a community college here in North Carolina and had big plans for the future. His death was definitely sudden and unexpected; we miss him terribly. I was always proud of him and to be his mother, no matter what. He worked through the disabilities and had some great accomplishments. Even the day before his passing, he was happy and was looking forward to the next day, as usual. I sure do miss him!"
