Tod Alvord Gordon passed away peacefully at the Kansas City Hospice House on May 3rd, 2016 surrounded by his family.
He is survived by his wife Theresa of the home, son Chad Gordon of Topeka Kansas,
Daughter Sophia Hohenberg ( Michael ) and granddaughter Briella of Grain Valley Missouri.
Son Clint Gordon of Topeka Kansas, Sister Anne Carpenter of Raytown, MO. and sister Ruth Flanigan of Kansas City, MO.
Tod was born in Independence Missouri on September 19th, 1953 to Robert and Dorothy Gordon. He grew up in Independence and attended Raytown High School. After school, Tod was employed as a sub contractor with Fountain Glass for many years and was a master of many skills, which he proudly passed onto his sons. Tod met Theresa in 1973, and the two were married in 1978, starting their family in 1979.
Tod was an avid outdoorsman and loved hunting, fishing camping with his family, and anything that that involved being outside. Tod was a huge fan of the local sports teams including the Chiefs, Royals, and Missouri Tigers. He loved cooking and his preparation of smoked Brisket and Ham was a family favorite tradition.
Tod was very much a man’s man and did not compromise his beliefs. He was very loyal to those in his life, and was the first person to offer his help to anyone in need.
He will be missed very much by his family and friends and will always be remembered by all who knew him. Many thanks to the wonderful, compassionate staff at the Kansas City Hospice House for the care they provided Tod and the family during this difficult period.
