On Sunday, the City of Greenbelt sadly shared the news of the passing of Councilmember Ric Gordon, a cherished figure in the community.

A native of Prince George’s County, Councilmember Gordon was recognized on the City of Greenbelt’s website as a devoted advocate for the residents of Franklin Park. His commitment extended to addressing a range of needs and concerns, bridging the gap between property management and the city of Greenbelt.

Words fail to capture the depth of this loss. Our hearts go out to his family and fellow council members at the City of Greenbelt during this difficult time. For those acquainted with Ric, his profound dedication to his family, the Greenbelt community, and the larger Prince George’s County area was evident. Always ready to extend a helping hand or a sympathetic ear, his absence will be deeply felt.

In honor of Ric’s memory, a GoFundMe campaign has been established to support his grieving family. Below is the link:https://gofund.me/2cf9a802
