He was born on November 1,1955 in Bellingham to Richard and Nancy Farmer. Gordie lived in Bellingham his whole life. He started working at Intalco at the age of 18 where he worked for 13 years. Gordie’s love and passion for motorcycles which he started riding at a very young age lead him to open Wings Motorcycle in June of 1980. Gordie owned and operated Wings for 38 years before retiring and selling it in 2018. He welcomed all bikers regardless of what they rode, people were truly amazed at his knowledge of bikes. It was awe inspiring watching him work. Several customers would come into Wings just to sit and chat with Gordie. Gordie loved to go on bike rides, play darts, play poker or just hang out at the Waterfront Tavern with his friends. Gordie and Lynne purchased the Waterfront in June of 1999, and up until a couple of weeks ago he was there every morning to do pulltab paperwork. Gordie looked forward to his annual vacation every year when he would travel to ST Thomas in the Virgin Islands for 2 weeks. He absolutely loved his grandchildren taking them to Disneyland several times. Gordie was looking forward to the birth of his new grandson due in 2 weeks. Gordie is survived by his loving wife of 25 years Lynne, parents Richard and Nancy, sister Kathy (Jeff), brother Randy, children Shayla (Nick), Danicka, Debra (Robert), Josh, Mitchell (Mona) and TJ, grandchildren Chandler, Bentley, Temperance, Theodore, Noah, Ava, Kayla, Mason, many nieces and nephews and to many friends to mention. He will be remembered as a remarkable member of the biker and dart community.
