Ray Donald Gordon Jr., 85, of Hudson, WY passed away August 4, 2023 in Riverton.

Ray was born on September 1, 1937 in Emmetsburg, Iowa.

Ray was a U.S. marine, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend to many. He was strong willed and the definition of a good man. He was strong and committed to his morals and believed in doing the right thing and having fun. He went through many stages in his life from being a Marine, raising kids, riding horses, running completive dog sled teams, hunting, fishing, and a lot of motorcycle riding. He could tell stories about his life that sounded like plots from a movie. He could give you advice on almost anything in the world. He was a man that lived by his own accord and asked for no one’s permissions. 

He is survived by many people that he helped make into better human beings. So, whether you knew him as the older guy driving around town, doing poker runs on his orange trike, knew him from hunting in Pinedale and all-around Wyoming, knew him in his dog sledding days, or just from talking or enjoying a beer or two, please join us for a celebration of life for Ray in Riverton, Wyoming at the Chandelle Event Center. A small service will start at about 7pm and then we can all tell stories.
