He was born May 19, 1926 in Oxford Township, Minnesota to Charlie and Martha (Onasch) Stamm. Gordon grew up in Oxford Township and attended country school at District #43. After his schooling he worked on the family farm. In August 1950 he enlisted in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Texas until April 1951 when he was moved to Japan. Gordon was stationed in Japan for 16 months and was honorably discharged in August 1952. Upon returning home he began working at the Minnesota Linseed Plant. In April 1953 he began working at the Ford plant in St. Paul, and retired from there in 1988 after 35 years.
On June 11, 1955 he was united in marriage to Lucille Nylander at the Glendon and Irma Hanson home. They lived a short time in an apartment in Minneapolis before moving to North Branch. They moved to Isanti next to Elim Baptist Church and in 1967 bought the home they have since lived.
