He was born on February 4, 1949 in Milburn, Oklahoma to the parents of Ishmel and Sedonia (Lewis) Gordon. Cleo was the youngest of 11 children and when he was born got diagnosed with Down Syndrome. He was adored by all of his siblings, especially his sisters who spoiled him while his brothers always tried to keep him in line. Cleo was a child at heart; enjoyed making fans out of newspapers that he said he would use to ward off evil spirits, pestering flies and sometimes even swat at his nieces and nephews. Watching western movies and singing the introductory song to cops were what you could find him doing if he was in front of the tv. The simplest things in life made Cleo happy such as giving him a coke and he thought the whole world was perfect. His smile was contagious and could light up the room. The impression he made on everyone’s life he came in contact with was enduring. Cleo loved his momma more than anything in the world and could not wait to see her again. He will be deeply missed. Gordon is preceded in death by 4 sisters and 1 brother. Those he leaves to cherish his memories are his brothers, Isaih Gordon of Ardmore, Lincoln Gordon of Ardmore, Ralph Gordon of Lawton; sisters, Levada Jeffers of Ardmore, Ethel Lee Casey of Kansas City, MO and a host of other family and friends who will deeply miss him.
