ALVAH R. GORDON January 17, 1929-November 28, 2021 Alvah (Red) Gordon was called home to be with the Lord on Sunday November 28th, 2021, at his home in Belfast. Red, (as he was always called due to his fiery red hair) was born January 17, 1929 in Thorndike Maine to Ruby Merry and George Gordon. He grew up quickly, and worked at the grain mill in Thorndike as a boy to support his father. When he turned 18 he was drafted into the Army, and served in the Korean War. He met and married the love of his life Gloria Jean Palmer in 1962, and they were happily married for 52 years, until her sudden passing on June 6, 2014. Red's favorite job was as the Engineer of the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad. He retired after 18 years, but never lost his love of trains. He was a loving husband, a wonderful Father and a kind human being. His smile was always there even at the end. He was 92. He is predeceased by his wife Gloria (Jeannie) Gordon, son Dale R. Gordon, Parents and Siblings. He is survived by his daughter Mary Armstrong-Bowden and husband Doug Bowden, daughter Tina Gordon Hall and husband Larry Hall. Grandchildren Amanda Armstrong Hopkins, Dustin Armstrong and Brett Armstrong Jr. He had several great-grandchildren that he loved dearly, nieces and nephews. Red spent his last years at home, with his daughter Tina. She and her sister Mary cared for him with much love and care. He will be missed by all who knew him. Graveside Services with Military Veteran Honors will be in the Spring, at the Smart Cemetery in Belfast.
