Bill Gordon

Engineer who helped set up plant in Russia

Bill (R.W) Gordon.died in May 2019.
Bill moved to Melrose Road in the village nearly 40 years ago, shortly before his retirement from ICI Fibres where he was employed as an engineer.  
Besides spells for ICI in Harrogate and in Northern Ireland (Kilroot) he was part of an ICI team that over a few years created a nylon spinning plant in Russia.  
His wife, Eunice, passed away about six years ago and he has a daughter (Jayne) and family in Northern Ireland and a son (Neil) and family near Ripon.  
He was a lovely and interesting man and will be greatly missed by all.  
The funeral took place at Stonefall Crematorium, Harrogate, and afterwards at The New Inn at South Stainley.  Family flowers only but any donations please to The Macmillan Nurses.
