Gordon Cotter Death, Obituary – Gordon E. Cotter, also referred to as “Gordy” in some circles. Gordon E. “Gordy” Cotter, who resided in Jacksonville and was 72 years old, passed away on Friday, January 13, 2019, with his family and friends at his side. On January 2nd, 1951, he was brought into the world at the Passavant Hospital in Jacksonville, which is located in Florida. Dorothy and Kenyon Cotter were his parents, and he was their son and their offspring. He is survived by his son Lucas Cotter (Lindsey), his cherished grandson Lennon J. Cotter of Jacksonville, his most cherished niece Jody (Aaron) Albers of Winchester, and two great nieces Rylie Albers of South Carolina and Rinnan Albers of Winchester.
He was preceded in death by his wife, and he was a veteran of the United States Air Force. His most valued asset was his grandson, Lennon J. Cotter, who lived in Jacksonville. Before he was born, his grandparents Otis and Maude Jouett, as well as Glenn and Lena Coats, had already passed away. Both of his parents had already passed away before he was born. He worked at Mobile Chemical for a considerable number of years up until the transition, when he found himself unemployed. The study of music was his primary passion. In 1965, he and three of his close friends and fellow bandmates, Jerry Reno, Thayne Bradford, and Bill Dunlap, established their own band and gave it the name The Vibrattos.
They got their drive from listening to The Beatles, who were at the time one of the most influential bands in the world. They would get together in the basement of Dunlap’s house every day to practice, and they would play at the birthday parties of their other students as well as their own graduation party when they were in eighth grade. In addition to that, they were offered a spot on a television show called the Possum Holler Opry, where they would be performing.
In 1980, the band went through a rebranding process that resulted in the adoption of the moniker Flatland Band.
