Gordon Koz passed away very suddenly, surrounded by his family, in San Diego on February 12, 2020, a day after his 85th birthday. Gordon, son of Jack and Mattie, and brother of Leslie and Neville, was born in Johannesburg on February 11, 1935. In 1978, he and his family emigrated to San Diego. Here he operated a fast-food business for six years and worked in retail until he retired at the age of 75. Gordon was a very good sportsman all his life, having played soccer, tennis, and golf. He frequented the local gym at least four times a week and played golf with his buddies twice a week. He also was a very gifted artist and spent many happy hours on this hobby.
He was a quiet, gentle, modest man, who loved his family and was loved by his wife, Beulah (Linde), children, Simon, Jillian (Berman), and Vivien (Dean), and their spouses, Raquel, Colin, and Brian, and grandchildren, Aaron, Lauren, Rachel, Sarah, Sophie, Natalie, and Gavin. He will be missed very much.
