Apache Gordon

Ronald Frank “Apache” Gordon, age 71, passed away on June 17, 2022.

Apache was born in Savannah.  He served in the United States Army in Vietnam where he received several medals including a Purple Heart, a Combat Infantry Badge, and an Air Medal- which is awarded for single acts of heroism or meritorious achievement while participating in aerial flight.  

Apache had no known family.  His remains were escorted by the Patriot Guard Riders of Georgia from Hicks Funeral Home on Wednesday July 13, 2022 to Milledgeville for a 1:00 p.m. Committal Service, after which he was interred in his “guaranteed place” at Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery.    

He was loved and cared for by Cheri Haynes and her fiancé, Henry Kirby; and her son, Erik Haynes. 

Apache traveled from California to Georgia with his friend, Carroll “Hobo” Funkhouser of Bowman.  Apache had many friends across the country and had many tales to tell.
