John Gitre Gordon

John Gitre Gordon, 63, of South Boardman, passed away on June 10, 2018 at his home.
He was born in Saint Clair Shores on Dec. 1, 1954 to the late Raymond J. and Elizabeth A. (Hastings) Gordon.
At age 13 his family moved north to a farm in Fife Lake. This is where John’s love and appreciation for the outdoors deepened. Nothing made him happier than sharing his love for the outdoors with his family, friends and oftentimes mild acquaintances.
In December 2017, John retired from a 45-year career in the oil and gas industry. He made many dear friends along the way and was always willing to lend his experience to others.
John had a very simple strategy to life, “Work hard, and play harder.” As a result, he packed as much life as you can into his 63 wonderful years. This truly unique man will be greatly missed by the many lives he impacted with his infectious passion for living.
He is survived by his wife of 34 years Patti; his children Renae (Miller), Miles and Matt Gordon; nine beloved grandchildren; 11 brothers and sisters; along with countless nieces, nephews and cousins.
Visitation will be held for friends and family from 1-8 p.m. on Friday, June 15 at Kalkaska Funeral Home. Arrangements have been entrusted to Kalkaska Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
