Obituary for JImm Gordon

Jimm Gordon, 60
May 1959 - July 2019
Jimm was born to William Paul Gordon and Sharon Wilkins Gordon in May of 1959. He was raised on a ranch in Cascade, Montana and spent his early years as a cowboy. He graduated from Cascade High School in 1977. Jimm married his sunshine, Judy Paulson, in June of 1979. Jimm and Judy started their family while operating the family ranch on the banks of the Marias River outside of Cut Bank, Montana. In the late 1980s, the family moved to Oregon for Jimm to pursue higher education and become a Radiologic Technologist. He excelled at his courses and was valedictorian of his class. Jimm then brought his family to St. Maries, Idaho and began his career in the X-ray department of Benewah Community Hospital. He spent the next 16 years caring for community members. After retiring from the hospital in 2008, he was a full-time, doting grandfather to his four "Ricelings": Layla, Luie, Lilyanna, and Loki. He spent many hours dreaming of activities and shenanigans to get into with the kids. Jimm and Judy moved to Coeur d'Alene in 2014 and that is where he passed away from medical complications on July 15, 2019.
Jimm could make friends easily with his charm, wit, and wry sense of humor. He is well known as a prankster among his friends and acquaintances. He was a writer, having an outdoors column in the newspaper while he went to college and short stories & poems published in magazines. Jimm loved music and could often be found with a jaw-harp or nose-flute in his pocket that he would whip out on a moment's notice to play a song.
Jimm is survived by his wife, Judy Gordon of Coeur d'Alene; son, Alexander (Adam) Gordon of Bellingham Washington; daughter, Diana (Wesley) Rice of St. Maries; sister, Genevieve Gordon of Helena, Montana; mother, Sharon Wilkins Britton of Cascade, Montana; stepmother, Mary Gordon of Lewistown, Montana; his four grandchildren, numerous nephews and nieces, and an abundance of friends. Jimm was preceded in death by his father, William Paul Gordon, and grandparents, Harold and Lois Nelson.
