It is with great sadness and love in our hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father, uncle, grandfather, coach, and friend.
Gordon died peacefully in his sleep and went to be with the Lord on September 22, 2010. He was born on April 24, 1931, in San Pedro, California. After graduating from Stanford University in 1953, Gordon became a pilot in the United States Navy serving from 1953-1958. Following that, he received his Master’s Degree in Physical Education from San Jose State. He coached football at the high school and junior college levels for more than 50 years, but coaching at Crescenta Valley High School always held a special place in his heart.
In addition to coaching, Gordon was actively involved in church, enjoyed golfing, home improvement projects, and spending time with his family, friends, and his dog, Fred. Watching his grandsons’ sports activities always brought him great joy.
