Gordon Stoker lived to be 88 years old. He died at his home in Brentwood, TN.
Stoker was a native of Gleason, Tennessee, where he grew up in a musical family.
1st there was the “Foggy River Boys”. When Gordon Stoker replaced Bob Money as the pianist a new group was formed named the “Melodizing Matthews”. The group was based in Springfield, Missouri.
The Melodizing Matthews soon changed their name to The Jordanaires, after Jordan Creek in Missouri—not after the Jordan River, as many have thought.
Gordon Stroker was a tenor singer for the Jordanaires from 1951 to 2013.
