Gordon was honorably discharged from the United States Air Force, working many years at Selfridge Air National Guard Base. He retired from TACOM, however, not being one to sit still, he worked many places post retirement, including Focus Hope and Mueller Brass.

He was an avid woodworker, always with a project on deck. He very much enjoyed golf and looked forward to his weekly league in Michigan and Florida.

Gordon always approached life with an optimistic attitude, and was always smiling and joking. He will be greatly missed.
