Gordon Dean Maxey, of Edmond, Oklahoma, entered eternal life on November 1, 2021, at OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, following his courageous battle with throat cancer. He died on his 63rd birthday. The son of the late Jesse Dorsey Maxey and June Alice (Reynolds) Maxey, Gordon was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma, on November 1, 1958.

Gordon worked for many years in construction, assisting his parents in the homebuilding business. Later, he worked in the food service industry as a waiter.
