Gordon E. Klahn, age 86, of Stanton, passed away peacefully on Monday, April 18, 2022 at Spectrum Health Hospitals Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.
Gordy was a guy who loved tinkering and building things. He was a talented woodworker and clock maker. He would crack you up with his sense of humor and witty personality. Gordy loved his John Deere lawn mowers, his coin collection, antiques, cookies, Werther’s candy, and searching for treasures with his metal detector. He also enjoyed playing bingo with his neighbors at Myrtle Mae in Stanton and Greenville Rehab and Nursing. Gordy will be dearly missed by everyone. He was a very social guy who loved talking to others and making new friends.
