Share this obituary

Gordon A Gang, 82, of Carrollton, passed away Friday, Jan. 14, 2022, at Carroll County Golden Age Retreat. 

Born Jan. 17, 1939, in Canton, he was a son to Gordon Donges and Dorothy (Roush) Donges. In addition to his birth parents, he was proceeded in death by his adopted father Harvard Gang, and a grandson-in-law, Ben Luderer. 

Gordon was a proud U.S. Army veteran having served in Korea. He was loved by both adult education and high school vocational Machine Trades students alike. His teaching career started at Tusky Valley Local Schools and continued to New Philadelphia City Schools, Horry Country Career Center (SC), and Alliance City Schools, where he retired. 

He enjoyed playing Euchre, Cribbage, and Hasenpfeffer, but he loved to play Poker. Donnie, as some knew him, liked to fish, feed and watch the birds, and tend to his trees and gardens. He was a devoted New York Yankees fan and rarely missed a game on TV. Gordon was the definition of a “People Person”, and would talk to anyone at any time. 

He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Nancy (Jacoby) Gang; three sons, Darren (Mindy) Gang, Daniel (Maria) Gang and Jesse Gang; five grandchildren, Brandy (Gang) Luderer, Aaron Gang, Sean Gang, Mackenzie Gang and Danielle Gang; two great-grandchildren, Aaron M. Gang Jr. and Shaylin Gang; a brother, Tom (Nancy) Gang; and sister, Malinda Williams. 

Gordon was a loving husband, father and grandfather who will be missed by his family and friends. Per his wishes he will be cremated and laid to rest  in Harlem Springs Cemetery. 

Dodds Funeral Home of Carrollton assisted the family with arrangements.
