In Memory of Gordon Pizor

With sadness, we mourn the passing of a member of our Brandywine family, psychologist Gordon Pizor, on January 10, 2011.

Gordon worked for Brandywine for more than 25 years, providing psychological evaluations and testing for clients. He worked closely with clinical and medical staff to diagnose and treat patients, assisting them to recover from addiction and mental illness. He also attended many of our P2R process improvement meetings to help us work on ways to increase patient access and decrease wait time for mental health services.

In addition to his work with Brandywine, Gordon maintained a private practice, specializing in adolescents and learning disabilities. He was also the co-founder and Head Coach of the Wilmington Youth Rowing Association, which taught the sport of rowing to at-risk and disabled youth.

Gordon had a true passion for his profession and for helping others. He was well-liked by both patients and staff, and will be greatly missed.

A celebration of Gordon's life will be held on Saturday, January 22, from 11 am - 1 pm at the WYRA Boathouse, 500 E. Front Street in Wilmington. A scholarship fund has been set up in Gordon’s name, and details will be placed on the WYRA Web site shortly.
