Gordon E. Rasco

Press Republican Jan 2006

Gordon E. Rasco
POMONA, N.Y. ? Gordon E. “Slim” Rasco, 55, of Pomona, N.Y. died Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2006, at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, N.Y., after a long illness.

He was born on May 1, 1950, the son of Shirley Lobdell Rasco and the late Edgar Rasco.

Gordon was born and raised in Saranac, N.Y., and attended Saranac Central School. After he finished school, he became a masonry apprentice to the well-known mason, Orey Gadway. Over the years Gordon built many beautiful fireplaces, each one a true work of art and a labor of love.

In 1967, he moved to Spring Valley, N.Y., where he began his career at Letchworth State Hospital where he worked with the developmentally disabled. He retired on May 1, 2005, after 38 years of dedicated service.

At a very early age, Gordy acquired a passion for country music. Uncle Jack (Whitey Keese) gave him his first guitar and taught him how to play. Gordy became “SLIM.” He played country music with the Green Mountain Boys for over 20 years. His own band, Slim Rasco and the Swinging Doors, were together for over 20 years. He made quest appearances with many bands, but his best music was played around the kitchen table with family and friends. As his love for country music grew, so did his extended family.

Gordy was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved hunting on his property in Black Brook where he built his dream retirement log cabin. He also spent many hours fishing with his dad and brother in their favorite fishing spots on the True Brook Road.

Gordy lived every aspect of his life with passion. He represented the true meaning of being a “true friend” to many, many people.

Although Gordy lived downstate for many years, he enjoyed “riding the old Northway” home.

He was a member of the American Legion Post 1600 in Pomona where he joyfully tended bar, cooked for special events and played music.

Survivors include his daughter, Jennifer Rasco and her fiancÃ’ David Goldberg of Philadelphia, Pa.; his mother, Shirley Rasco and her significant other of many years, Bernard Hayes of Cadyville; four sisters, Nancy Abrahamson of Ohio, Brenda Bouchard of Morrisonville, N.Y., Kathleen Dowd of Portsmouth, N.H. and Mary Frenyea and her husband Leeward of Cadyville, N.Y.; a brother, Richard “Rick” Rasco and his significant other Karrie Hathaway of Morrisonville, NY; 11 nieces and nephews; and seven great-nieces and nephews; and a wealth of family and friends.

He was predeceased by his father, Edgar Rasco, on July 8, 1989.

Calling hours will be Friday, Jan. 13, 2006, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. at the O’Neill-Redden-Drown Funeral Home in Plattsburgh.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Saturday at 10 a.m. from the Church of the Assumption in Redford, N.Y.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Strong Memorial Hospital, Liver Transplant Program, Rochester, NY 14642.
