Gordon Roark

 

Gordon Silby Roark, age 85, of Rock Creek Rd., Creston, NC  went home with his Savior on Sunday evening, March 19, 2023 at his home after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was born August 8, 1937 to the late Rommie and Ruth Price Roark. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Max Roark, Wayne Roark, and Grant Roark.

Gordon was the most humble and kind person. He loved the Lord and served Him from a young age. He was a wonderful Sunday school teacher and was a United States Army veteran. Gordon was a special person who never had a harsh word for anyone. He took care of his invalid wife for many years. He was one of a kind and is truly going to be missed.
