ALPINE - Lewis Bly Gordon, 77 and a lifetime resident of Alpine, died at his residence Dec. 1, 2014.

Memorial Mass will be at 10 a.m., Dec. 8, at Our Lady of Peace and military graveside service will follow at the chapel at Holy Angels Cemetery.

He is survived by daughters Rita Gordon and Jessica Gordon of Alpine, Lorina “Sugar” Klingemann of San Angelo, Donna L. Gordon of Houston, Lupe Rodriguez of Carlsbad, NM, Ramona L. Moore of San Antonio; sons Rodolfo “Rudy” Gordon of Alpine and Michael H. Martinez of San Angelo.
