Jimmie Thomas Gordon, age 78, passed away peacefully on September 11, 2020 in Clarksville, TX after 2 years of declining health. Jimmie received care from his wife, daughter, and the gracious staff of Clarksville Nursing Center.
Jim served in both the Army National Guard and later in the Navy during the Vietnam War. After an honorable discharge from the service, Jimmie married Florine Chumley on September 16, 1967. They settled in Grant, OK to raise their only child Jennifer Gordon.
Jimmie had a passion for music. In his younger days was an avid dancer. He and his sister-in-law Jean often entertained the crowd by dancing the jitterbug to the rock-&-roll hits of the day. Many times Jimmie and Jean's dancing would clear the floor while the crowd watched in appreciation.
Jimmie was also a life-long outdoorsman. He loved his family and enjoyed providing for them through hunting and fishing. Nothing pleased him more than sharing his knowledge of the great outdoors with the younger generations. He was willing to teach anyone that wanted to learn the skills he'd honed since childhood.
Jimmie was survived by his wife Florine Gordon, daughter Jennifer Gordon, and multiple nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by parents Adelaide "Jenny" Davidson and Jimmie D. Gordon; maternal grandparents Laura and Clem White.
Family is practicing social distancing, and would like too ask everyone to wear mask.
