Gordon enjoyed riding his Gold Wing motorcycle and went on many trips in his younger years. He was on his 8th Corvette, enjoyed NASCAR, boating, and many sports including Illini Basketball, Cubs, and Bears. He loved meeting with friends for a drink at his favorite places. Gordon was quick witted and always had a joke or a good story. He was a family man and cared so much for family and friends. He was also a grill master with his weber and enjoyed tinkering in his garage, maintaining his home, yard, and especially his vehicles. 

 

Those left to cherish his memory are his daughter Kristine Mueting; sister Shirley Billings; brother Jim (Mary Sue) Billings; grandchildren Matt, Jacob (Kaleb), Aaron, Josh, and Maegen; great grandchildren Jaxson and Jaida; his partner in life and best friend Marianne and his best buddy Wally. 

 

Gordon was preceded in death by his parents, son Douglas, former spouse Barbara Flippo, and beloved pets Max and Sissy.
