GORT -  Raymond Gort passed away into the loving arms of Jesus on Wednesday, October 4, 2017. 

He leaves behind a loving wife Magdalene (Naber) of 69 years, and five children, Wayne and Lucy, Kenneth and Lisa, Lynne Gort, Janet Gort, and Dale and Pat Gort; 12 grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.

Raymond served in the U.S. Air Force from 1945 to 1946 in the Japanese occupation.  After the service, he worked for the City of Grand Rapids installing and maintaining traffic signals for 36 years, and retired in 1987.   Raymond became known among family and friends as “Mr. Fix-It” because of his curious nature of always wanting to know how things were put together or how they worked, so they could be fixed or repaired later.

Visitation for Raymond will be held from 2 - 4 p.m. Sunday, October 8, 2017, at the Cook Funeral Home in Grandville (West building), 4235 Prairie St., SW.  Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, October 9 at South Grandville Christian Reformed Church, 4130 Wilson Avenue, S.W., Grandville, with visitation one hour prior to service.  A private family interment will be at Floral View Memorial Gardens. 

Memorial contributions in memory of Raymond may be made to Grandville Christian Schools.  The family welcomes memories and messages in their online guest book at www.cookcares.com.
