Nursing home staff, veterans, and community members from near and far gathered Thursday afternoon to honor the late Gordon Hale at his funeral at Lake Forest Cemetery. Sanctuary at the Shore staff served as Hale's family for the past 14 years, as he has no biological family as far as they know. Hale served as a barber for 35 years at the Pantlind Hotel in Grand Rapids.
