Gordon was born on January 27, 1941 in Chicago, IL to Joseph & Mildred (Ferguson) Tontlewicz. He married Gloria (nee Rennick) on January 14, 1961 and had two children.
Gordon's greatest passions were his family and working. He especially enjoyed his 30 years as a Doorman with Darien Condominiums. He was a loving father and grandfather who was always there for his family. Throughout his life, he loved reading the newspaper, watching old westerns, trains (both real and model) and spending time with his grandchildren. Gordon was devoted to family and deeply loved by all who knew him. He will be profoundly missed and never forgotten.
