Gordon “Gordy” Kachur, age 83, of Vermilion, Ohio, passed away on April 13, 2020 after a short illness.  He was born in Lorain and resided in Vermilion for 42 years.  He was a graduate of the 1954B class at Lorain High School and the 1962 class of Lorain School for Technicians, which is the forerunner of Lorain County Community College.  After serving in the United States Air Force at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, he attended Ohio State University and Lorain School for Technicians.
