An Introduction by Robert Gordon

1924 - 2017

My interest in the the mortuary business, started almost as a lark.  We were to write a paper on our future plans in our senior year in high school and another student and I decided that we would write about being undertakers. A short time later, my mother passed away after a long illness and I was so impressed with the compassion and help that the funeral director provided, plus the restoration of my mother's beauty and healthy appearance, as done by an excellent embalmer, I decided, that's for me.  I applied for a job as an apprentice at a local funeral home and was called to work four days after graduation.  I finished my apprenticeship in 1946  after returning from serving almost four years in the Army and subsequently passed the State Boards and became a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer in 1947.  I got a job in Cleveland, Ohio with Berkowitz and Sons, where I worked until 1952. I moved back to Akron, my birthplace, and opened Gordon Memorial Home Inc. in a converted double store room which consisted of office space, chapel seating 120 people, with a separate area for private family seating ,casket showroom,embalming room and rest rooms. We moved into our present location in 1962.

In December of 1989 I decided to retire from active ownership of the home, and turned it over to Craig Flury. I have been so pleased that he has been able to maintain the very high standards that I set for myself, and has continued to have Gordon-Flury Memorial Home serve the needs of Akron families.
