In Memory of Steve Gordon

Stephen Philip Gordon, age 56, beloved husband, father, son, friend and political consultant, left this world suddenly, unexpectedly and far too soon on September 5, 2018 in White Plains, New York.

He is survived by his mother, Barbara (Hall) Gordon of Hartselle, Alabama; wife, Deborah (Speck) Gordon, M.D.; son, Bryan James Gordon, of Lincoln, Nebraska; daughter, Amy Elisabeth Gordon, of Santa Fe, New Mexico; and brother, David Gordon, of Anza, California.

Stephen was born on July 31, 1962 in Sheffield, Alabama to Paul and Barbara (Hall) Gordon. He was very active in Boy Scouts of America. The family later moved to Lincoln, Nebraska and Stephen graduated from Lincoln High School in 1980. Stephen enlisted in the Army and became a Sergeant in the Signal Corps. He served during Operation Desert Storm. His service in the Army spanned more than a decade, during which time he earned numerous awards: Good Conduct Medal; Multiple Army Achievement Medal; an Army Commendation Medal.

After being Honorably Discharged July 7, 1995, Stephen relocated to Macon, Georgia, where he worked in medical practice management and became active in the Libertarian Party of Georgia, co-founding two county chapters and ascending to leadership positions. He continued his work with the Libertarian party in Alabama beginning in 2002 and New York in 2014.

Stephen’s goal was that of making the United States into the country that Thomas Jefferson had envisioned. He wanted to make the world a better place during his lifetime and mentored many young people. He was a kind and generous person who went out of his way to help many people.

Services will be held Wednesday, September 12, 2018, at Spry-Williams Funeral Home in Florence, AL. The family will receive friends from noon to 2 p.m. The funeral service will follow at 2 p.m. in the funeral home chapel with Reverend Dr. John Killian officiating. Burial, with full military honors, will be in Oakwood Cemetery in Sheffield, AL

Due to the unexpected circumstances, funds will be used to cover medical, funeral and relocation expenses.
