Gordy grew up in the Como Park area and graduated from Murray High School in 1950. As a teenager, he enjoyed ski jumping around the metro, exploring Como Park and sneaking into the fairgrounds with friends.

Gordy worked as a carpenter for 25 years and later became the Chief Building Inspector for the City of Roseville.

After retirement, he volunteered at St. Tim’s Church and at “The Gathering”, providing respite care for people with Alzheimer’s.
