Gordon attended Wheatley Elementary, Stephen F. Austin, and later Thomas Jefferson High School, having graduated in 1972.

After graduation, Gordon attended Lamar University in Beaumont.

A job opportunity resulted in his employment at E. I. Dupont in Orange, Texas for over 30 years.

Gordon held several positions at DuPont, Process Operator and Expediter. He always loved cars.

He loved working on cars to consist of race cars, regular cars and even watching vintage cars he could identify by year.

He additionally was adept at putting together things as well as repairing items presented to him.

To his credit, Gordon repaired our home devastated by Hurricanes at least three times.

Some of these times, renovations occurred when kidney problems or dialysis were a part of his life.

Though Gordon had many medical challenges, he never complained. He continued, doing as best he could, one day at a time.

Gordon was preceded in death by his beloved mother Emma D. Theall and our precious son, Christopher L. Theall, whom he loved both dearly.
