Indianapolis, Indiana

Kenneth Lee "Kenny" Gordon, Sr. also known as Santa Kenny, passed away on February 13, 2024, in Indianapolis, Indiana, at the age of 70. Born on February 28, 1953, Kenny was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. His death has left an immense void in the lives of all who knew and loved him. 

Kenny dedicated 36 years of his life as a Supervisor for Commercial Sewer Cleaning Company before retiring. During that time everyone called him Chicken Man!  However, his true passions lay in the outdoors, where he found solace in hunting and fishing. He loved to share his travelling stories with everyone. Florida was a big part of his life, but he loved traveling to many other destinations including: Michigan, Colorado, Alaska, Mexico, Canada, and The Bahamas. He also cherished the joy of family gatherings, especially playing the role of Santa Claus for his loved ones.

Beyond his professional and personal interests, Kenny was a devout member of his church and actively participated in community activities. He found immense fulfillment in spending time with his family, including his wife Gloria, his children Cynthia, Kenny Jr., and Amanda, along with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Kenny's vibrant spirit and infectious laughter will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. He had a way to make every person that he met feel special and he touched the hearts of so many. He leaves behind a devoted wife, Gloria Gordon, with whom he shared many beautiful years of companionship and love. His children: Cynthia (Richard) McKinney, Kenneth Gordon Jr., and Amanda (Brad) Norman were the light of his life and will carry forward his legacy of love and compassion. Ken’s memory will also be cherished by his grandchildren - Rachael (Nick), Ashley (Larry), William (Brandi), Tanner, Mackenzie, Hailey, Taylor, Jace, Alex, Jordan, Dustin, and Olivia. In addition, he had ten great grandchildren: Raelynn, Aubrey, Lennon, Nevaeh, Aryanna, Jazlynn, Domanick, Jayda, Colson, and baby Avery. He also leaves behind his brother Robert and sister Robin. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Patricia, his brother Donnie, and his sister Debbie.
