Robert Henry Gordon
02/12/1931 - 09/03/2021
It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of Robert H. Gordon of Nokomis, FL. on September 3, 2021. Bob was much loved by his family and friends during his 90 years of life.
Bob was a twenty year veteran of the Air Force and was stationed in England, where he met the love of his life Joyce.
He was an Air Force recruiter for many years in Ft. Lauderdale and was also stationed in Omaha, Nebraska and Oslo, Norway. After his service retirement, he moved to Boca Raton where he became a business form salesman until his ultimate retirement to the Venice area.
Bob was a kind man, who always looked for the good in people. Bob loved his dog, Bogey, who was always at his side. Playing golf was his passion up until the last few years. He enjoyed cribbage, watching sports of any kind, especially the Miami Dolphins and New York Yankees, and spending time with family and friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Bob was predeceased by his parents, Henry and Dorothy, his brother Donald, his wife Joyce, and his sons Stephen and Richard.
He is survived by his sons, Robert Jr. (Nancie), Scott and his daughter Lori Gordon Collison.
Bob had the pleasure of spending time with his nine grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren and counted these moments as some of his happiest times.
A memorial will be held in his honor on October 9th, with family and friends.
