Albert Eugene Gordon, of San Carlos, born July 27, 1930, died Feb. 11, 2017, with his family by his side.
He was 86.
Al grew up in San Francisco, where he attended Polytechnic High School. It was there that he met his wife, Dorothy, of nearly 65 years. Al was proud to be a U.S. Marine, serving in the Korean War. His Shasta Lake home was his “heaven on earth.”
He is survived by his two daughters, Cheryl (Gary) Barrango and Diane (Tony) Demattei as well as his four grandchildren: Janelle, Ryan, Kristin (Staci) and Kaitlin and great-grandson Vincent.
“Of great importance and comfort to Al as well as his family, is our love and gratitude to the two most incredible caretakers life could send our way, Robert and Emeline, who will be a part of our family forever.”
At Al’s request for a “going-away party” his family will host a Celebration of Life Saturday, Feb. 25. For details please email his family at CelebrateAlGordon@gmail.com with your name and association with Al and/or his family for details and location of the celebration.
