Gordon was born on March 4, 1958, the son of Robert J. Bores Sr. and Evelyn L. Bores (Winter) in Marshfield, WI.  He graduated from the Stratford High School class of 1976. On November 13, 1982, he was united in marriage to the love of his life, Joan K. Kleinschmidt, at Zion Lutheran Church.

Gordie had a great interest in automobiles and began working with them at Klemme’s doing oil changes. He would then move on to become the parts and service manager for Wheeler’s Chevrolet in Marshfield for over 20 years. After that, he would work as a service manager at Chili Implement before moving to Mid-State Truck Service in Wisconsin Rapids, now known as Ascendance Truck Center.

Along with his love for automobiles, he also enjoyed fishing, deer hunting, snowmobiling, and going to see his favorite band, KISS.  He also enjoyed taking trips with his family, dog Tika, and best friends, Scott and Kathy Kann, going to the State Fair’s, Renaissance Festival, Mall of America, and fishing trips to Canada with his friends and brothers. Most of all, he enjoyed helping people and making them happy. From the customers he worked with to his family and friends, Gordie wanted people to know he appreciated them.

Gordon is survived by his wife: Joan; children: Steven (Meg Przybylinski) Marshfield, grandchildren: Logan and Olivia; Matthew, Wausau; and stepson: Robert Willman, Knoxville, TN, granddaughter: Elizabeth. He is further survived by his siblings, John, Ron (Twila; Brianna, Cassidy, Derek), Jo Ann (Rudy Werner; Cory and Jim Wiesman; Stacey and Lee Spindler; Amy and Ryan Cournoyer), and his sister in-law: Jane (Al; Jessica and Cory Rudnitski; Stacey and Paul Neumann; Danielle and Cameron Carson).
