Remembering Robert Gordon

Craig Floyd presents Mr. Gordon
with the Lifetime Achievement Award in May 2011.
Today, the Memorial Fund mourns the loss of its close friend and Board Member, Robert Gordon.

Robert (Bob) Gordon was a Founding Board Member of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. During his 27 years with the organization, he served as an original member of the Names and Officer of the Month Committees.

Mr. Gordon served the law enforcement community with distinction for nearly 60 years, starting with his appointment to the Freeport (NY) Police Department in 1952. He was a longtime police labor union leader and lobbyist and the Secretary Treasurer of the United Federation of Police.

Earlier this year, Memorial Fund Chairman & CEO, Craig W. Floyd presented Mr. Gordon with a Lifetime Achievement Award, for his leadership and dedication to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Mr. Gordon will be greatly missed; condolences to his family.


  1. Bob was certainly one of a kind. His unique character is irreplacable.

  2. Bob was always kind to me during my time on the NLEOMF Board. He was always helpful and always ready to hear the "survivor's perspective" from me as C.O.P.S. National President. He was an asset to the NLEOMF Board and to C.O.P.S. and he will be missed.
