Obituary for Gordon G. Bourdo

Bourdo, Gordon G.

Gordon Glenn Bourdo, age 79, went home to the Lord on Saturday, November 2, 2019. Gordon was born on July 6, 1940 in Delton, the son of Glenn and Dorothy (Foote) Bourdo. Gordon attended school in Orangeville and Delton. He married his love, Frances (Anderson) Bourdo on May 23, 1959 who survives. He is loved and respected by his family, his community, and all those who knew him. Gordon was a logger by trade, a hunter and a fisherman. His happiest days were spent in the outdoors, from the whitetail woods and bass filled lakes in Michigan to the trout streams and bugle laden mountains of northwest Colorado. There was no end to the hunger for adventure that coursed through his veins. His love for wild places was genuine and contagious. Gordon is also survived by his brothers: Bill Bourdo and Jim Bourdo; his sisters: Betty (Bourdo) Tobias and Barb (Bourdo) Czuk; his son: Michael Bourdo; daughters: Sally (Bourdo) Zelenock, and Kelly (Bourdo) Smith; grandchildren: Jeremy Bourdo, Josh Smith, Francque Zelenock, Beau Zelenock, Sequoyah Smith, and Trayton Bourdo, and eleven great grandchildren. Gordon was preceded in death by his brother: Chuck Bourdo; his parents: Glenn and Dorothy Bourdo; his daughters: Jody and Tammy; a great granddaughter, and several aunts and uncles. Gordon’s family will receive friends on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, 5:00 to 8:00 PM at the Williams-Gores funeral home in Delton. Gordon’s funeral service will be conducted on Thursday, November 7, 2019, 11:00 AM at Thornapple Valley Church on M-43 in Hastings. Burial will take place in Oak Hill Cemetery.
