Mr. Maurice Gordon, of 1910 S. Winget Street, Gastonia, North Carolina, was the son of the late Arthur Gordon, Sr. and Novella Armstrong Gordon.  He was born March 27, 1963 in Gaston County, North Carolina and was called home to heaven on Monday, August 14, 2017 at CaroMont Regional Medical Center in Gastonia, North Carolina. 

Maurice joined Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, Gastonia, North Carolina at an early age and was active in many of the children and youth activities.  “Earl” was a graduate of Hunter Huss High School, Gastonia, North Carolina “Class of 1981”.  He joined the United States Navy for a short stint, but he spent most of his life in and around Gastonia, particularly the Victory community, where he was part of the extended family.  The Gordon family lived on Winget Street for more than sixty years.

“Earl” was always quick with a joke and the life of the party at any gathering, especially on the “front porch”.  He could intelligently talk about everything from politics, religion, sports, music and everything in between!  His gentleness, good humor and dedication to family and friends will be missed.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Antwan Je’Dean Neely and his brother, Arthur Gordon, Jr.

He is survived by one son, Jah’Kwesi Gordon of Gastonia, N.C.; sister, Esther L. Gordon of Mitchellville, MD; four grandchildren, Tristen, Torrence, Mauric and A’tru; one aunt, Dorothy G. Tate; nephew, Brian Willis (Nikki), the Victory Family and a host of other relatives and devoted friends.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. Death is never easy to have to deal with. The bible does provide us with comfort and hope. Revelation 21:4 says that God will wipe every tear from our eyes and death will be no more.

    Very sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is to lose someone in death. The bible does help us to see that God will, by means of His son Jesus Christ wipe every tear from our eyes and death and pain will be no more. (Revelation 21:4)
