Gordon attended Lincoln schools. He spent his younger years on the farm in Lincoln. He was inducted in the U.S. Army in the early 50's. After basic training he was stationed in Hawaii. Upon returning home, he worked for the Curtis Farm Dairy. He was very capable in the milk house and also delivery driver. His route took him through Springfield, Topsfield, Brookton, and Danforth. After his marriage to Sarah Pinkham, he resided in Bucksport.
He took up masonry for a career and worked in Bangor as a mason for many years. After losing Sarah, he resided in Glenburn. He enjoyed his vegetable garden that kept him busy.
Besides his parents, George and Lida, and his wife, Sarah, he was predeceased by five sisters, Glendine Maiwald, Decima Curtis, Peggy Powers, Lorena Powers, and Joyce Chesley; four brothers, George, Franklin, Calvin, and Newton Curtis. He is survived by two sisters, Mary Parsons of Lincoln and Victoria Knights and Edwin of Brookton; a brother-in-law, Melvin Chesley, sisters-in-law, Leola Curtis, Dora Curtis and Earline Curtis all of Lincoln; several nieces and nephews; a special niece who was always there for him, Beth Harvey of Lincoln.
The family wants to thank Beth for all she did for him and them - the many rides to the V.A. and the hospital and whenever we needed her. Thank you from both of us. In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice.
