Gordon Denekas, 63, of Lake Havasu City passed away Aug. 26, 2017.

He was born Sept. 8, 1953 to Milton and Laura Denekas in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

After graduating from high school, Gordon decided to further his education. He attended Trinity University in San Antonio and received a Bachelor of Science degree in construction management. Gordon ended his working career when he retired as an Internal Revenue Service agent.

He met Margaret Thebeault, and they married in Houston on Jan. 21, 1981. They lived in Waller, Texas, where he raised his four children on their small farm.

Gordon was an Eagle Scout, Sea Scout, a Trinity Alumni, and most importantly, of the Christian faith. He enjoyed art, animals, kids, music, cars, traveling, spending time in the outdoors, and the unusual.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Milton and Laura Denekas.

Gordon is survived by the mother of his children, Margaret Thebeault, of Lake Havasu City, sons Anthony Denekas of Havasu and Dustin Denekas, of Las Vegas; daughters Angela Allison of Havasu and Lisa Thompson of San Marcos, Texas; brothers Alan Denekas of Roanoke, Virginia and Brian Denekas of Oregon and seven grandchildren.
