Larry “Lon” Gordon Jr. passed away on July 6th, 2015, he was 72 years old and loved by many. Lon had some great achievements in his life, he attended New England College where he graduated at the top of his class in engineering. He also served in the United States Army and was honorably discharged. Professionally he worked in civil engineering and construction for may years. He worked for Cowper and ARCO before starting his own company. In his later years of retirement, he enjoyed day trading, surfing the internet and watching programs that highlighted the past.
We all love him dearly and treasure the happy moments we were able to share with him over his lifetime. Whether it was introducing his grandkids to shows on the History Channel, taking his oldest son to his first R rated movie, walking his daughter down the isle, summer boating and camping trips, or telling his wife how beautiful she was on a daily basis. Those are the moments we remember and celebrate. We hope that those who knew him are able to cherish their own fond memories.
He is survived by his two younger sisters Lea and Suzie, his children, grandchildren, and of course his loving wife Bette, who was married to him for thirty-three years.
The family will be having a private service at their family house in Maine. Those wishing to pay their respects are simply asked to keep the family in their prayers, especially his loving wife Bette. In lieu of flowers or gifts the family asks donations be made to Lower Cape Fear Hospice of Wilmington, North Carolina. The Lower Cape Fear Hospice allowed Lon to pass away with the peace and dignity we all hope for in our final days.
