The Revd Robert Gordon
I write with deep sadness as we mourn the sudden death of our friend and colleague The Revd Robert Gordon.
Robert’s ministry was very much valued across the Exeter Archdeaconry and the wider Diocese. He was ordained in 1989 and served his whole ministry in this Diocese (except for his curacy in Lichfield Diocese). Robert’s parish ministry saw him serving in Bideford, Feniton, St Peter’s, Tiverton for sixteen years and mostly recently amongst us here in the North Creedy West Mission Community which encompasses the parishes of Bow, Morchard Bishop and Lapford amongst others.
Robert was a wonderfully wise and compassionate colleague who embodied prayerfulness and humility.
For some of us the pain and sorrow of Robert’s untimely death will be keenly felt, and feelings and emotions will be raw. Please continue to keep Robert’s wife Steph, and their family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
