Gordon was born in Dickinson on August 22, 1951, the son of Leo Wagner and Irene (Kooren) Desmond. He grew up on a farm near South Heart and attended South Heart Public School. Following graduation, he worked on drilling rigs in the area. He also ran heavy equipment and machinery. Gordy proudly raised three daughters, Tara, Cristee and Brooke. He farmed and ranched near South Heart all of his life. In 2002, Gordy married Susan Schneider in Dickinson. Together, farming and ranching was their life. Gordy was a farmer/rancher at heart.
