Memories from Ann Louise Gordon Edwards (his daughter)

Contributor: AmyCrow Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Alma had wavy red hair and had freckles. He was short. His wife LaRue and he were close to the same height. He had a stocky build. Ann remembers her dad loving to sing. He was a Tenor. He often had either Naomi Park or Helen Gordon play for him. He would take Ann to Sunday School. He lead the music in Sunday School. He sang to organ music. He was very active in the LDS church. He was a scout leader and often took the young men on their camp outs. He loved the church sports (mostly baseball) and community sports. He ran a fruit stand with the fruit he grew in his orchards. He would battle the snakes that appeared to scare Ann. Their house was on State Street in Orem with a large property. His was happy guy who would kid around with people. He was very well liked by all who came into contact with him. He worked hard! OUt back behind the house was a place where he built his fruit crates. It burned down. They think that a man who worked for him may have accidentally burned it down. The brothers came to help rebuild it. They did not see him after it burned down. (He was a smoker.) He would capture stray cats so that Ann could have a cat. The cats did not stay long but there was always another one captured. They also owned cows. Alma loved to dance and often danced with his wife LaRue. The ward house they went to was also used as a dance place. They would take the bench pews out and use it as a dance hall. He was kind and was willing to help others. He liked horses. As far as Ann knew, he got along with his brothers. He had 4 daughters and then was thrilled when is son Steve was born. Grandma was pregnant with his 5th daughter when he died. Ann remembers that he was setting out to wash his apples. He was headed up the canyon to Birdseye. Then the mystery begins. He was found shot in the chest (as far as Ann remembers). No one really knows what happened. The Police investigation was not conclusive. It was never said it was a suicide although some may think that. His mysterious death was later looked into and any official investigation information was not found. ( Strange) This will be one of those first question we will ask on the other side.

Alma Lowell Gordon was born on 21 May 1914
Alma Lowell Gordon was 15 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
