Born and raised in the Olney neighborhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he was the third — and tallest — of four children of the late James and Francina McGee Gordon.

Mr. Gordon later moved to a house surrounded by woods in New York state's Mid-Hudson Valley, where he installed the roof and porch and continued working as a handyman – his motto was “Get It Done.” But he kept in close touch with his family and enjoyed visiting his sisters Patricia and Francine in the Philadelphia area.
