Norman Kirk Gordon, son of Lester and Ellen Gunderson Gordon, was born May 6, 1917 in rural Hamilton County. He graduated from Lincoln High School in 1935. He married Irene Harrison on September 21, 1940 in Holstein, and they farmed south west of Webster City until his retirement in 1988.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Philip Gordon; and brothers, Howard and Kenneth Gordon.

Norman was a member of First Baptist Church in Webster City and Noon Kiwanis. He served on the Highview Co-Op Board of Directors, and delivered Meals on Wheels with Irene for over 30 years. He loved rocks and sold his Brazilian agate rockwork at craft shows for many years. He never left home without a rock in his pocket.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorials may be left to Meals on Wheels in memory of Norman.
