MOURNING A LOSS
It is with a heavy heart that we again must say good bye to one of our deputies. Mr. Bobby Gordon, who served us faithfully for many years has passed away. He was a great man and mentor to all of us. Please remember his family as they face the days ahead.
Bobby R. Gordon
January 07, 1950 - April 23, 2017
Memorial services for Mr. Bobby Reuel Gordon will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 in the Chapel of Rush Funeral Home, Oakdale with Reverends Russell Kirkland and Jerry Odom officiating.
Mr. Gordon, 67, of Oakdale, entered eternal rest on Sunday, April 23, 2017 with his loving family by his side.
Bobby, who was the first elected Oakdale Chief of Police, was passionate about his community and its people, so much, that at the age of sixteen, while on vacation, he jumped into the water and saved the lives of three people. He served as a law enforcement officer for over thirty five years and will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Rhodolph and Mabel Young Gordon; his brother, Rudolph “Boots” Gordon and his sister Patsy Ruth Gordon.
Those left to mourn his loss and cherish his memory include his loving wife of forty four years, Loree Holladay Gordon, of Oakdale; three children, Cory and his wife, Andrea McClung Gordon, of Oakdale, Kerry and her husband, Cliff Brumback, of Westlake and Casey and his fiance’ Tamara Monceaux, of Oakdale and seven grandchildren, Cade and Haidee Gordon, of Benton, Breanna Beniot, of Westlake, Tyler Brumback, of Lake Charles, Alex and his wife, Erika, of Lake Charles, Trevor Thompson, of Franklin and Brooklyn Gordon, of Fairview.
The family will receive friends in the Chapel of Rush Funeral Home, Oakdale on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. until time of service.
Donations may be made to the American Cancer Society, LA Baptist Children’s Home, Dry Creek Baptist Camp or Special Olympics Teen Challenge.
