Gordon was born in Phillippopolis, Ottoman Empire, now Plovdiv, Bulgaria. He was a son of Edward and Elisabeth Frolich Haskell.

He attended Voorhee's School for Boys, Occidental College and graduated from UC Berkley.

He married Viola Schumsky on March 8, 1953 in Juarez, Mexico. In 1970 he married Rachel Gillum.

Gordon devoted his life, both professionally and personally, to social and economic justice and equality. He thought globally and acted both globally and locally. His early devotion to social justice through social revolution evolved into a dogged determination to work in his own communities for obtainable and sustainable political and social change.

Gordon was a father of two, step-father of three, grandfather of ten and great-grandfather of two.
