Gordon, Mark

Bloomfield, CT

Emmy award winner Mark Gordon, 71, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, August 10, 2023, surrounded by his family. He was the beloved husband of Deborah (White) Gordon and devoted father of Joshua Gordon, of Bloomfield, CT, and Noah Gordon, and his wife Dana Finkle, of Fairfield, CT.

Born in Malden, MA, son of Arthur Gordon and the late Hilda (Menovich) Gordon, he was lucky enough to have two careers in fields he loved: television and cars. He first worked as an engineer for multiple television stations in the Northeast before retiring and working part-time as a driver for Enterprise. His number one love was his wife and two sons. He also cared deeply for the family’s late turtle.

He was the dear brother of Wayne Gordon, and Cheryl & her husband Paul Needleman. He was a dedicated uncle to over ten nieces and nephews, and he was a great friend to all.

Funeral services will be held Sunday, August 13, 2023, at 4:00 p.m. in the Priest Chapel, Lincoln Park Cemetery, 1469 Post Road, Warwick, RI 02888. Immediately following funeral services, light refreshments will be served at the Touro Fraternal Association located at 45 Rolfe Square, Cranston, RI 02910. Shiva will be held at the home of Noah and Dana, 289 Knapps Highway, Fairfield, CT, Monday, August 14, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to the Children’s Tumor Foundation, American Cancer Society, or a charity of one’s choice.

    Dear Debbie and Family,
    I check in here on Facebook a couple of times a week. I am truly saddened by your great loss. Mark was a wonderful classmate and friend in all our public schools, from kindergarten to high school. I was also friendly with Wayne, my condolences to you too, and Cheryl their sweet sister. I will cherish his memory. He was a very cool guy and original, to boot. So sorry he’s not with us any more.
