Gordon Ervin Althoff, of Mora, passed away on Sunday, November 22, 2020 at St Clare’s Hospice Care in Mora, MN. He was 71 years old.

Gordon was born at the Kanabec Hospital on November 11, 1949 to Ted and Mary (Elling) Althoff. He was baptized and confirmed at Zion Lutheran Church in Mora, MN. Gordon joined the US Navy after graduating from Mora High School.

On April 26th, 1975, he married Marlene Olson at St. John’s Luther Church. To this marriage two children were born; Brent Daniel and Julie Lynn. They lived on the Althoff family farm in Whited township for 26 year- raising beef cows and horses before moving closer to town and then eventually to the Spring Brook Golf Course. Gordon loved music, golfing and being around people. When he was not at Spring Brook golfing, he was very active in church activities especially Zion Lutheran Preschool. He was known by some as Grandpa Gordy and was always a kid at heart. He enjoyed seeing the kids learn new things and make a new friend in God.

He was preceded in death by his wife Marlene; parents Ted and Mary; brothers, Roger and Mark.

He is survived by son Brent (Kristine Duhamel); daughter Julie (Cody) Metz; sisters Alvera, Darlene, Joanne; brothers Arnold (Diane) and Robert (Kris); as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

  1. I had the privilege to work with Gordon for many years at Zion preschool. It was wonderful to see his dedication to the preschool children. He was the one to push the children on the swings and make sure the parking lot and walk ways were safe for them. He shared his knee x-rays every year when X was the letter of the week. He was always willing to help in big and small ways. I am thankful for the good memories and will miss him but I know he is with our heavenly father and enjoying eternal life.

    My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26

  2. I knew and worked with Gordy during our time at Creative Marketing Concepts. He was a dedicated worker, a good friend and devoted family man. RIP, Gordy.

  3. Gordon was an influence in my life. He was a fun person to be around especially when I grew up around the Althoff clan. I also worked with him at Fingerhut. He would give the shirt off his back if you needed it. He will be missed. RIP Gordy.
