Dana “Danny” Alan Gordon Sr.

LIMINGTON – Dana “Danny” Alan Gordon Sr., 68, passed away on March 20, 2023, at his home with his loving family by his side after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

He was born in Torrington, Conn. on June 7, 1954, son of William and Joan Gordon Sr. After graduating from Gorham High School in 1972 he went on to work in the supermarket industry for 42 years.

He married the love of his life, Robyn Mowatt, in April of 1981. They resided in Gorham for 37 years where they raised their two children and enjoyed spending time with their five grandchildren.

He loved doing karate with his two children when they were younger. Dana was an avid golfer and could always be found at the Gorham Country Club every Saturday and Sunday early morning. He delighted in his yearly golf trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C. to spend time with his friend, Randy.

To fill his days on the off season he spent time watching football and could always be heard by the neighbors cheering on the Patriots.

He spent a great deal of time with his wife going to concerts with friends Jack and Kathy Jo. They also had fun going on cruises, especially a two-week trip to Alaska.

Friends and family always got many laughs from his jokes. He was famous for his one liners and had a distinct laugh that everyone knew and couldn’t help but smile at when you heard it.
