Gordon died Sept. 24, 2006, at his home in Katonah, N.Y.
“Murph,” as some knew him, graduated from Fieldstone School in Toronto, Canada. At Princeton, he majored in chemistry and was a member of Gateway Club.
During World War II, he served in the Army Signal Corps in the European theater and the United States, attaining the rank of captain.
Gordon was a manufacturer’s sales representative for 47 years, specializing in process equipment for industry. We could always count on seeing this loyal Princetonian at Alumni Day, Reunions, and since the death of his first wife, Phyllis, as a regular at the New York City class dinners.
He enjoyed hiking, bridge, and reading.
Gordon’s classmates wish to express their condolences to Zoe Macaulay, his wife of 17 years: his daughters, Jacqueline Mosher, Grace Faber, and Leah Johnson; and eight grandchildren. His son, Gerald ’69, died in November 2005.
