EDEN - Gorden Edward Eden Sr., 87, passed away in his home on Thursday, April 15, 2010. Gorden was the son of Ben and Bernice Eden, whose family ‘homesteaded’ in Stanley, NM, where he attended school. He served in the U.S. Army and was stationed at Ft. McDowell CA, which became the staging area for replacements in the Pacific Theatre during WWII. Gorden married Charlotte Marie Lewis on 9/27/47, and together they had three children. Gorden and Charlotte lived on a ranch in the South Valley of Albuquerque for many years, where they raised race-horses. Gorden enjoyed a long and successful career in automobile sales and management working many years for Galles Motor Co. and Ed Black’s Chevrolet, before co-owning an auto sales business with Charlotte. Gorden and Charlotte were long time members of Central United Methodist Church and Gorden was a member of the Masonic Lodge. Gorden is survived by his sons, U.S. Marshal Gorden E. Eden Jr. and wife, Mary; John Eden and Jeanne of AZ; daughter-in-law, Susan Eden; grandchildren, Tiffany, Ryan and wife Katie, Renee, Kyle and fiancé Katie, Josh and Cory; great-grandchildren Chandler and Elliott, and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife, Charlotte; daughter Sherry; and son, Travis. At his request, a private service for his immediate family will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Association, 3411 Candelaria Road NE, Suite-M, Albuquerque, NM 87107 (leukemia.org) or the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association, PO Box 502, Milford, CT 06460 (RSDS.org).
