I met him in 1982. in the city of Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia.
He gave training to chemistry teachers in Bali Province. I was one of the teachers who was lucky to meet him.
I call “My Father”. and He called me “Very Nice my son”.
He is an example of the best teacher.
I feel lost “My Father”
Goodbye, heading towards God. Mr. Gordon Hillis Aylward.

We’ve already sent our condolences to Chris and Tony, and to Margaret and Glenn, but here’s a chance to again say how privileged we were to have Gordon in our lives.

He hired me in 1987 to help out in Indonesia with a UNDP program to assist with the development of secondary education in all provinces. It was the start of a friendship which lasted from then until now.

He blessed us with his friendship and love and humour. We were truly fortunate to be able to share many years with him.

Vale old friend, and thanks for so very many things.
