Gordon Robert Edmond “Big G” was born July 12, 1954, in Fort Wayne, Indiana and passed away in his home on September 15, 2023, at the age of 69.
Gordon attended Concordia Lutheran High School, Fort Wayne, Indiana, and participated in their leadership and development program under their non-military ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) program. The goal of this program was to provide participants with structure, rules, discipline; goals they are willing to pursue; interest that engaged their minds, body, and spirit. The
program was to help prepare the students for becoming an adult and entering the real world.
Upon graduating from high school, Gordon attended Indiana Institute of Technology where he excelled in computer science and technology. He moved to Ohio and worked at Ohio University as
facility computer consultant and technician. He remained at that position until he retired at the age of 65.
Gordon was a family man. He mastered the strategic board game, chess, and taught Trevor, and his two brothers to play and to appreciate chess. Gordon’s intention was to teach his sons strategic thinking, creativity, memory skills, and logic. His sons still play the strategic game, chess.
Gordon (Big G) really admired the Pittsburgh Steelers. Only a very brave person would watch a Steelers game with him; they were not just his favorite team, but he considered them to be the only real football team, he supported the team through thick and thin, good calls and bad calls, good plays and bad plays. You would think that he was the owner of the Steelers.
Gordon was preceded in death by his loving wife, Monica Lynn Edmond (2015); mother, Opal Edmond (2005); and father, Cletus Edmond, Sr. (1999), and brother Cletus Edmond Jr. (1999). He is
survived by his sons, Trevor Alan Edmond, Robert Pouncey, and Clarence Stephens; daughter, Moniqua Davis; and sisters, Natalie Manns and Linda Edmond Stanley.
Gordon leaves his cherished memory to cousins, aunts, and uncles, who continue to live in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and other family and friends, too many to name. Gordon will be missed by all those who had the privilege of knowing him.
