Gordon Ray Wartenbach died on June 6, 2013, in a Dallas hospital. Gordon was born to Wallace and Selecta Wartenbach on March 30, 1934, in Mason, Texas. He attended Mason public schools and was active in choral groups and music events throughout his school years.
After service in the U.S. Navy from 1954 to 1957 with tours in Japan and Alaska, Gordon moved to Houston, Texas where he attended the University of Houston. He was employed in the transport business until 1984 when he moved to Dallas to begin a new career in real estate.
Gordon is survived by two loving sons, Eric, of Harlingen, Texas, and Kurt and wife Shelly and two granddaughters, Caroline and Savannah, of Kingwood, Texas. Also surviving Gordon are several cousins with whom he was very close.
The family is very grateful for the love and support of Gordon’s friends and neighbors for their love in support in these last few years as he battled COPD.
He is missed by all who knew him. A short celebration of Gordon’s life will be held at the Mason National Bank, at 10:30 a.m. on November 9. Friends and family are invited to attend.
