Gordon L. Hackman, 82, departed this world on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 with his family by his side.
Gordon was the first-born of Lester Moyer Hackman, Sr. and Mabel Wenger Hackman, followed by Pauline Hackman Duhe and husband Leonard (both deceased), Robert D. Hackman and wife Kathy, Frances Hackman Wood and husband Rob, and Lester M. Hackman, Jr. and wife Ruby.
He was married to the love of his life Marion Dunn Hackman. They had one beloved child, Sandra Hackman Young and one very special grandchild, Benjamin Gordon Robinson.
Gordon was valedictorian of Hahnville High School 1955, attended Goshen College in Indiana, and joined the US Army in 1958 being stationed in Schweinfurt, Germany. Upon his return, he attended Tulane University and LSU Law School, graduating in 1965.
Gordon practiced law for thirty-seven years in St. Charles Parish, taking care of the legal needs of generations of local families. He was an avid gardener and enjoyed many happy days tending his beautiful flowers and plants.
Gordon and Marion had a wonderful marriage. They enjoyed many memorable trips, meals, and good times with each other and friends.
The family would like to thank Eduardo Rodriguez MD, Leonard Glade MD, Royce Yount MD, Salvatore Caputto MD, and the nurses and employees of Touro ED and CCU for their excellent, heartfelt care.
At Gordon's request, there will be no formal services. He also requested that, rather than flowers or memorials, his family and friends take someone they love to dinner and think of him.
