Gordy served as a Trustee on the S.O.S. Project Executive Board since its inception in 2012. He has been an integral part of the many S.O.S. project fundraisers. The S.O.S. volunteers could always count on him for coffee and donuts to get the day started.

He was an avid Ohio State Buckeyes and Cleveland Browns fan. He also enjoyed golfing, bowling, billiards, and playing cornhole. He loved being outdoors and spending time with his family and friends.
