There is no obituary or independent confirmation of Gordon's passing. The remarks below were drafted by Hart Kelley who received the sad news directly from Gordon's family. If more information surfaces it will be forwarded to you.
Gordon was born in Ft. Myers, Florida in 1937. His family purchased The Mangoes, Henry Ford’s estate in 1945 and that is where Gordon grew up and attended local schools. He attended University of Florida in Gainesville. After graduation he entered the US Air Force flight training and flew the C-130 during the Viet Nam War.
Leaving the Air Force he applied to and was hired by National Airlines in 1965. National merged with Pan Am in 1980 and Gordon transferred to Delta Airlines in 1991 following an asset purchase, from which he retired in 1997.
He is survived by three brothers, Malcolm, Tito and Sandy Biggar.
There are no services planned at the present time. Gordon's wishes were to be cremated and an at sea ceremony held later.
