Bill Gordon was a financial advisor in Nashville, TN who was very involved with his church Inglewood Baptist Church; he was a soccer parent, enthusiast, and referee for nearly 40 years in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. As a skilled gardener he took pride in his flowers and loved to show them off to all. He loved his family, his fiancé Elza, and his faith.
Bill was involved in many organizations over the years including Clark County Soccer Association, Southern Indiana United Soccer, Jeffersonville Rotary Club, The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, and the Iron Men of Inglewood Baptist Church.
Bill was charismatic, quirky, positive, determined, and kind. His love for nature, music, and all things flashy made him so unique. Alongside his gardening he was a lifelong Louisville Cardinal and Cincinnati Bengal fan and enjoyed going to see his teams live. He always loved to be “In the House” as he would call to let you know he was at the game.
Through his faith he was able to achieve so much but most importantly was a loving father who’s heart knew no bounds for his children. Bumper’s legacy will live on through his children, his family and friends, nature, and through his shared faith.
Left to cherish Bill's memory is his loving fiance, Elza Soares; children, William "Alex" Gordon, Christopher Gordon (Melanie Harris), Kathryn Shah (Kaleb), and Selene Williams (Stephen); mother, Cova Coppler; grandchildren, Hayden Gordon, Brayson Ayers, Hannah Shah, Samantha Shah, Adam Shah, and Matthew Williams; siblings, Connie Rogers (Jim), Danny "Robert" Gordon (Pam), Carla Gordon (Robbie), and Kay Gordon.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels. Envelopes will be available at the funeral home, or donations can be accepted online https://www.kycolonels.org/.
