Gordon was the oldest of three sons, born to Guy and Anna (Miller) Sevy on December 31, 1925 in Pasadena, MD. After graduating high school from William Chrisman, Gordon enlisted into the military and proudly served as a pilot in the U.S. Army Air Corp during WWII. In 1946, Gordon married his sweetheart, Dorothy J. Bilquist and the pair soon welcomed two children, Nancy and Mark. Gordon worked for Standard Oil then transferred to AT&T where he worked as a pipefitter and in management, for over 25 years. Gordon was a longtime member of the Buckner Restoration Branch church, where he served as an Elder, sang in the choir and was a faithful and true servant of the Lord. He was a wonderful husband, excellent father, an outstanding grandfather and a dear friend to many. Gordon was a man of high integrity. He was humble, kind, loving and the most patient man you’d ever meet. He was an expert marksman and pilot, who enjoyed trout fishing, bird watching, war movies, reading, playing cards, watching sports and exploring the beauty of God’s creation with his beloved, Dorothy. Spending time with his loved ones, listening to Dorothy play the piano and serving his Heavenly Father, alongside his fellow brothers, are a few of his favorite pastimes. Gordon is survived by this wife, Dorothy, of 73 years; daughter, Nancy (Marty) Bolyard; son, Mark (Natalie) Sevy; granddaughter, Whitney Sevy; grandson, Tyler (Amy) Sevy. He is preceded in death by both parents and his brothers, Marvin Sevy and wife, Pat, and Russell Sevy and wife, Carol.
