Sonny was born May 11, 1943 to Lewis W. and Marion (Harrington) Gordon in Portland, Maine.

On January 13, 1968, Sonny was united in marriage to Alice Stanley in Sloan, Iowa.

Sonny owned the Bronson Body Shop in Bronson and worked most of his life in the body shop business until semi-retiring in 2005.

He continued to do odds-and-ends jobs after retiring including painting house doors for quite a few people.

Sonny enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, hunting, boating and camping.

Everyone that knew Sonny knows his main passion was cars — especially old cars, fast cars and drag racing.

He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather.

He is survived by wife, Alice, of 50 years; two sons: Bradley (Amy) of Perry, IA and Michael (Jennifer Van Roekel) of Bronson, IA; eight grandchildren: Amber, Cadie, Layce, Savannah, Zoe, Nathaniel, Jacob and Abigail; one brother, Clarence “Buddy” of Sioux City; two sisters: Patricia (Larry) Hildebrand of Tulsa, Oklahoma and Debby Gordon of Sioux City; other relatives and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents and two sisters: Kathleen L. Baird and Betty Mae.
