Thomas J. Gordon was born on March 20, 1961 in Cleveland, Ohio and passed away on October 28, 2018 surrounded by his family. He resided in Eastlake but was previously from the westside and Mentor. A proud Veteran, Tom served in the United States Army. He received a degree in Criminal Justice from Ashland University, and worked as a Safety Director for Voss Aerospace. In his free time Tom enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson, watching the Cleveland Browns, listening to rock-n-roll and cooking. As a member of the War Hogs of Lake County, he was able to enjoy a lot of time on his bike with his wife and friends. Tom had a way of making everyone feel welcome through his funny sense of humor. He was intelligent and strong willed. Tom was truly an awesome man and hero to all who knew him, and for that he will be dearly missed.
