Duane “Dewy” Ernest Gordon
Duane was born on April 12, 1949 in Wray, Colorado to Eugene and Katherine Gordon and was the fourth of six siblings. He died on December 26, 2021.
Duane spent most of his life in Fort Lupton, Colorado, working as a concrete foreman. He also served in the US Army and was honorably discharged. He enjoyed spending time watching sports, riding his Harley Davidson and fishing. One of Duane’s favorite pastimes was watching his two sons, Aaron and Ty, play sports. There was never a missed game when it came to his boys, even if it meant he had to drive hundreds of miles. Many times he would take his friends to games to watch and brag about his boys. He was a devoted father and he was never afraid to show it.
Duane liked to take his boys fishing in Wyoming on the Platte River, just outside Saratoga. It was a Fourth of July tradition with Duanes’ parents, Eugene and Katherine. They fished, hiked and fired guns all day and lit fireworks every night. Maybe even drink a beer or two!
Dewy also loved hanging out with his friends over a cold Bud Light and a cigarette! He loved riding his Harley Davidson with friends and often traveled to Sturgis for the bike rally. Dewy was never shy when it came to a good game of pool. He competed throughout the Denver metro area and even traveled out of state for competitions.
Duane is survived by his sons, Aaron (Casey, Zach, Spencer) Gordon; Ty (Alyson, Luke, Grace) Gordon; the Sandy sisters (Cecil), Connie Cross; his three brothers Jerry, Bruce and Russell (Sharon) Gordon and numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his two parents.
